Remove Live Communications Server 2005 SP1 Standard Edition
Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 will reach end of support on January 9, 2018. To stay supported, you will need to upgrade. For more information, see Resources to help you upgrade your Office 2007 servers and clients.
By default, when you deactivate and remove a Standard Edition server, the database and any associated logs are detached, but they are preserved on the server. During the removal procedure, you can chose to drop the databases and delete Live Communications Server data and logs. It is recommended that you retain the database and save the data in the event that you need them later.
To remove Live Communications Server 2005 with SP1 Standard Edition, do the following:

Log on as a member of the DomainAdmins group to a Standard Edition server that is a member of the same domain as the Live Communications Server 2005 with SP1 Standard Edition that you are deactivating. If the domain is a child domain, you must also be logged on as a member of the RTCDomainServerAdmins group. The Standard Edition server can be anywhere in the enterprise, as long as it is joined to a domain and the user has the necessary group memberships. You can also perform this task from a domain member server that has the Live Communications Server 2005 with SP1 administrative snap-in installed.
Open the Live Communications Server 2005 with SP1 snap-in: Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Live Communications Server 2005.
