We have  DAG environment Exchange 2010. We have two Edge Servers.  1 is located at a DC with all of the other Exchange equipment.  The other edge server is located at a remote office location that we are closing.  We will be removing this edge server and relocating to the main DC.  What affects will the shutdown and changing of IP address for this Edge server have on the Exchange environment?  Do I need to do some sort of fail over from this Edge server to the other one currently at my DC?  

Thanks

By edge server, do you mean Client Access Server, or is it truly an edge server?

Short answer: No, as long as Active Directory Sites & Services has the information on the subnet you are moving the server into (Subnet address and site name), and that site also has the EdgeSyncService in that site, you will be fine.EdgeSyncService

I do see the SYNC Service within AD Sites and Services  and as far I know this is a true Edge Server.  The EdgeSyncServcie Folder has nothing in it though does that matter? If not what your saying is BC I have this Edge Sync Service in place within Ad Sites and Services that if I take it down and off the network during the move I should not see anything affected bc I have the other Edge Server that will do all the work in its absence?

As long as the AD site you are moving the server into has that EdgeSyncService, it will work.
No, there should not be anything in that folder/container.
