How to Disable Microsoft SBS Exchange Server

You have migrated email from a Small Business Server Exchange to another provider (for example, Office 365). You want to disable the Exchange services to free resources.

Solution:

  1. Open a escalated Powershell.
  2. Use the Get-Service cmdlet to list all services, filter it to Exchange services, then use the Set-Service cmdlet to disable and stop the service:
    Get-Service | Where-Object { $_.name -match “MSExchange” } | Set-Service -Status Stopped -StartupType Disabled
  3. There may be a couple of services that cannot be stopped due to dependencies; you will need to use the normal Services MMC to stop and disable those.
