I have an exchange 2010 DAG set up, We have decided to 'upgrade' to a single server set up as we are a smaller company and don't really need all those servers.

I have set up a new server and would assume all you would need to do is a side by side migration. Has anyone had any experience doing this?

Also is exchange 2010 base Capable to coexist with 2010 SP1? Should we do the migration while they're still base 2010 side by side or shouldn't it be effected by having it updated to 2010 sp1 and the DAG still be the base install?

So if you setup both server in the same site for the migration you could use the dag to do the replication and then change the active database to the new server ones replication is completed and then remove the copy from the server that you want to decommission.

And yes a side to side migration would do the trick and 2010 with SP1 will coexist.
