  1. Hi,

    it’s also necessary (if you migrated exchange 2007 from 2000/2003) to remove the Routing Group Connector thats allow the comunication betwenn exchange 2007 and exchange 2000/2003

    To delete in exchange 2007:

    show the connector: Get-RoutingGroupConnector

    delete: Remove-RoutingGroupConnector -Identity “Source Routing Group showed in the show the connector command”

    Now, you can uninstall the hub transport role
