Manually failover cluster

In an Exchange2003 cluster environment what considerations should I make, and what process should I follow before I manually failover a cluster in a one cluster and two server environment.

You should do it off production hours as the users will see a short outage (about 1 minute).  The short outage time depends on your hardware and size of your exchange.

We do this all the time, just move the resources to the other node in cluster administrator.

Certainly thats one thing I'd do. I'm looking for a bit more than just that though. As in what service(s) need to be shut down and what order?
