Removing Exchange 2007 CCR Cluster

Our active mailbox node ran out of space and I needed to move the token over to our passive node. The passive node has plenty of space. I can't increase the space on the active node and we are moving to a hosted solution by the end of the year and do not plan on getting more space. I want to keep my mailbox sever on the passive node and break the cluster. Thus far I have uninstalled Exchange from the acrtive node and evicted it from the cluster. What do I need to do on the passive node now so that it is stand alone mailbox server?

Ideally, I would prever not want to have to migrate any of this data over to a new mailbox server.

I dont thik i explained this well enough. I am not sure if this article answers what I need to do. I already retired one node in the cluster. I want the renaming node not be part of a CCR cluster. I want this mailbox server to be a standalone mailbox server I don't thin this is possible. As far as I have been reading you have to move this data over to another mailbox server. is that correct?

The actual answer is that you would need to migrate the databases or mailboxes over to a new server. Once the data is migrated over you can use the aobve steps Satya suggested to retire the cluster.
