We have a 2 host Exchange cluster, which existed before we arrived here.  As a result we're a little bit uncertain about how to manage it.

We would like to shutdown the EX02 machine for maintenance.

The main Service and Application is on the EX01 machine, but the cluster host is on EX02.

How can we safely, without interruption move the cluster host to the EX01 server.

Thanks

Move all cluster resources to EX1 and then reboot the EX2 node
