SBS2008 (Exchange 2007) ready to remove following migration to Exchange 2013 - any special precautions?

Hello,

We are in the process of migrating from an SBS 2008 server to a Windows 2012R2 Domain with a separate Windows 2012R2 handling Exchange 2013.

All Exchange migration steps have been completed.  All mailboxes are now on the Exchange 2013 server.  Send/Receive connectors are on the Exchange 2013 which is now fully handling mail flow.

I am now ready to start removal of Exchange 2007 from the SBS 2008 server.  Following that, I will migrate the Active Directory roles prior to shutting it down permanently.

My question is that.  Being that this is an SBS 2008, are there any other special processes that I need to be aware of before uninstalling Exchange 2007? Also, are there any other concerns or potential issues I should be prepared for, or should this behave like a normal Windows 2008 server running Exchange 2007?  

Any suggestions or recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
