Demoting a 2008R2 Domain Controller to standalone server and leaving it in the domain

I've added a new domain controller to my network, which give me a total of three.  I would like to demote the oldest one to a stand alone server and leave it on the domain as a file server.  Is it as simple as confirming AD Replication and running DCPromo on that server?

Yes. Because it is your oldest, make sure no FSMO roles are on the server. Make sure no devices use it as their primary/only DNS server.
