Mail server no longer a DNS server safe to remove the NS record

Probably a really stupid question, but we recently moved exchange to a non domain controller (kept the same name). Everything is working well, but I noticed on the DNS server that it is still listed as a Name server and has an NS record for both our internal .loc domain and our external .com domain. I'm 99.999999% sure it is fine to remove it as a NS, but just want to be sure. The DNS role is not even installed on the server any longer.

answer is the same as in your other question - scavenge the stale dns records

But this isn't a stale record since it is a property of the DNS server under Name servers tab. Or will scavenge clean that up too?

If so that brings up a bit of a concern, static mappings (even if stale) will it kill those as that would not be ideal?

Disregard my 2nd part it will not scavenge statics unless they are set manually to do so. But I'm still not sure on NS. I guess I can wait until it runs and see. If it doesn't remove it, I can remove it manually from the property tab.

But the point of this thread was there is no "Exchange" reason for it to have a NS record correct? It was most likely left behind from the way I had to manually move the Exchange to a new box and the old one also had DNS/DC roles, which the new one does not. To rephrase Exchange doesn't need to be a NS server right?

sorry...misread
yes, you can remove from the name servers tab and it will remove the NS record; no affect on exchange especially when it is no longer valid
