If you are talking about mailbox database make sure all the users mailbox is moved to another database, you can run powershell query from other exchange servers and find if there is still any mailbox associated with the server to be uninstalled.

Also look at this:-

Nope.

All mailboxes should be moved off the database, and then the mailbox database deleted prior to removing Exchange 2007 from the server (the readiness check should alert about this). This also includes removing all public folder replicas and databases from the server you are decommissioning.

Why do you want to leave the databases in the dismounted stage anyways?
