Removing Unity from corporate domain.

The integration company that installed our first cisco avvid system configured our Unity server as part of the corporate domain. The box is running Unity 3.1.5 with Exchange 5.5. We really do not want the server in the domain. We would like to make it a stand alone. Is there a way to remove it from the domain? I know you can "remove" it but there are no local user accounts on the box. There are exchange user accounts but no system accounts. How can we do this?

Re: Removing Unity from corporate domain.

No real easy way (that's supported). You would need to make a backup using the Disaster and Recovery Tool (DiRT). Then use the Cisco Unity Uninstall tool to remove Unity, fix up the machine the way you want it (e.g. remove it from the domain, make it a domain controller for a new domain), then install the same version of Unity again and do the DiRT restore. Note: the dirt tool also allows you to restore to a different mailstore, e.g. exchange 2000, so if any upgrade to that was being considered, that would be a good time to think about doing it since it involves the same process basically.
