removing old exchange 2007 informaiton store server

We are running exchange 2007 in an active directory 2008r2 environment. I need to decommission our original information store server. I have already moved all the users over to our new server and now I want to remove it from exchange properly. Can I get some advice on removing the information store or what I call old data base server from exchange and eventually decommission it from active directory cleanly?? Thanks

Providing all the mailboxes/public folders/OAB/etc have been moved to another server the removal of an old exchange server is usually quite straightforward.

Firstly delete the mailbox databases on the old server (note if there's any mailboxes still residing in them it will not let you do this).

Once the mailboxes are removed you should be able to uninstall Exchange using add/remove programs.

Here's the link for instructions: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-GB/library/bb123893(v=exchg.80).aspx

As an alternative method you can use ADSIEdit if the above method does not work. This would be a last case scenario when removing Exchange.
