We presently have our Directory Sync tool installed on one of our Exchange servers.  We have built out a new dedicated server for the purpose of the Directory Sync tool.  What is the process to have the Directory Sync tool installed on the new server, and un-installed from our Exchange server?  Is there any risk in having two Directory Sync tools installed briefly? Is there a Microsoft article that outlines these steps, and anything to be concerned about?

Just uninstall it and put it on the other machine, nothing will happen if you skip a sync cycle or two. You cannot have more than 1 installed anyway.
