Recipient Update Service on Exchange 2003

I have three Exchange 2003 Exchange servers. I moved all the mailboxes off the oldest server and was going to keep it around as a backup. I did notice that the Recipient Update Services are pointing to this old server. Can I change the Exchange server in the Recipient Update Service to one of the other newer servers with causing a problem? If I can just change the server, should I "Update Now" or "Rebuild" right after.
I appreciate any help you can give.

Well before moving your RUS please run exbpa tool (www.exbpa.com) to know the basic configuration and recommendation...

Just change the server name and you are done. Don't need to run update now or rebuild command.

Make sure you have DC with GC.

Thank you for the quick responses. I do have a DC and GC in the same site as the Exchange servers. I appreciate your help.
