Remove Exchange 2010

I would like remove one of the Exchange 2010 sever from our environment. (keeping 2 others).  How do I do this so correctly?  The server is a Hub Transport server.  I did have PF replicas but I removed the replicas.  Please provide steps.  Thanks.

You just need to go into add/remove programs and remove the Exchange 2010 application. It is fairly simple (as long as there are no mailbox roles, but as you said you already removed the replicas for PF). This is a pretty simple process to be honest. If you encounter any issues with the removal and it never completes, you may need to use ADSI Edit to fully remove it's existent from your environment.

But honestly, this may not be necessary. Good luck!

Firstly stop all Exchange services or shut the server and ensure no issues reported for a few days and once done go to Add\Remove programs and Uninstall

When uninstalling Hub Transport Server, Make sure the send connectors are not using the server which is going to be uninstalled as the source server

Get-SendConnector | where {$_.SourceTransportServers -like "<Server name going to be uninstalled>"} | Set-SendConnector -SourceTransportServers "<Existing Hub Transport Server>"
 
Once done, you have to follow Rancy's suggestion.

Can I just delete the connectors for the server? I do have others connectors on the other servers.

If your comfortable you can but ideally you should do what Rajkumar has said to double confirm
