I'm having a surprising issue where our old OCS 2007 R2 Edge server died of hardware failure (no backup) in the middle of our move to Lync. How can I forcefully remove the Edge server from the organization without being able to deactivate the role from the server itself?

I've noticed the correct procedure for uninstalling OCS 2007 R2 is as follows:

If you are removing an Edge Server, a Mediation Server, an Archiving Server, or a Monitoring Server, remove the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 components in the following sequence:

Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2
Edge Server Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 
Mediation Server Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 
Archiving Server Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2
Monitoring Server Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 
Core Components Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2
Unified Communications Managed API 2.0 Core Redistribution package

And to deactivate an Edge server: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd572832(v=office.13).aspx

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
