Can I have a new Exchange server with an old server name?

Many moons ago, we had an Exchange server named stw-mx-01. Now we've migrated a few times, and have a CCR cluster called stw-mx-04. I want to get rid of the cluster, since it's WAY overkill for our organization, and frankly not worth the management overhead. Is there any reason that I can't (or shouldn't) stand up a new server, named stw-mx-01, and start the count over again?

Yes you can have stw-mx-01 as long as this server does currently not exists in active directory.

Was the server stw-mx-01 removed/decommissioned properly during the migration process. If yes.. You can create a server with same name..
