Intergrated DNS Windows 2003 Server

I need to retire a DNS Server in this company.  They are running windows server 2003 DNS Active Directory integrated.

Can I delete the name Server from the DNS manager console and then after that uninstall the service from the server I want to decommission.  Since they are AD integrated I don't think I have to worry about Primary and secondary DSN.  In this case, all the three servers all carry a writable copy.

Thanks for the help,

Rick

As long as all other servers have a writeable copy, simple delete the old DNS server from environment and/or remove the DNS server role.

If they are Domain Controllers I'd be sure to run a netdom query fsmo to insure they aren't holding any FSMO roles.
