Backing up 2003 Exchange Server, Web users .pst and Taking Exchange 2003 offline


I have a site that's going through a conversion (moving to a email hosted service from Exchange 2003) however I would like to backup that Exchange Server just in case something happens. I would like to save everything database, Mailboxes, etc... and point it to an external drive. After that I would like to take the Exchange server offline, but do not want to shut off the server because it is also the DC, DNS, WINS, File and print server.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
