Exchange 2010

Hi,
I have an Exchange 2010 server that is no longer in use, nothing is left on it and now I want to remove it from the Exchange Organization.  I have five other Exchange 2010 Servers and two Exchange 2003 that will soon we removed but I wanted to check if anyone had the correct steps to remove the Exchange 2010 Server without affecting the other servers or AD?

Cheers

Please check if any mailboxes are not exist on the server.
Check public folders should not exist on the server.
Check if the email flow is not routed through the Exchange server.

If there is nothing on the server then you can uninstalling by following the section "Modify or Remove Exchange Server 2010" in link.

As long as you have no mailbox or public folder databases on the server, you can just use the add/remove programs method. Exchange will run some tests beforehand and will stop if anything is using the old server for any reason.

So it won't affect the remaining servers or active directory, just the server that i am removing?

Yes it wont effect any other server. Also you have to remove the server from any connector which is a part of.
