This Server is the Source for a Routing Group Connector
[This topic is intended to address a specific issue called out by the Exchange Server Analyzer Tool. You should apply it only to systems that have had the Exchange Server Analyzer Tool run against them and are experiencing that specific issue. The Exchange Server Analyzer Tool, available as a free download, remotely collects configuration data from each server in the topology and automatically analyzes the data. The resulting report details important configuration issues, potential problems, and nondefault product settings. By following these recommendations, you can achieve better performance, scalability, reliability, and uptime.

Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 setup cannot continue because its attempt to remove the Hub Transport server role failed. The local computer is the source for one or more routing group connectors in the Exchange organization.
A routing group connector is used to send and receive messages between Exchange 2007 Hub Transport servers and Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange 2000 Server bridgehead servers. When Exchange Server 2007 is installed in an existing Exchange Server 2003 and Exchange 2000 Server organization, the required routing group connector is created during setup.
Exchange 2007 setup requires that all routing group connectors for an Exchange organization be moved or deleted from the Hub Transport server computer before the server role can be deleted.
To resolve this issue, move or delete all routing group connectors from the local computer and then rerun setup.
To move the Routing Group Connector using the Exchange Management Shell
Use the Set-RoutingGroupConnector cmdlet to modify the properties of an existing routing group connector between a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 routing group and an Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange 2000 Server routing group.
This example uses the Set-RoutingGroupConnector cmdlet to modify the source of a routing group connector
Set-RoutingGroupConnector -Identity "[[Administrative Group Name\]Routing Group Name]\Routing Group Connector Name" -SourceTransportServers [FQDN of desired Hub Transport Server]
To remove the Routing Group Connector using the Exchange Management Shell
Use the Remove-RoutingGroupConnector cmdlet to remove a routing group connector between a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 routing group and an Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange 2000 Server routing group.
The following example shows how to use the Remove-RoutingGroupConnector cmdlet to remove the specified routing group connector.
Remove-RoutingGroupConnector -Identity"[[Administrative Group Name\]Routing Group Name]\Routing Group Connector Name"
