Getting rid of MS Edge Server

I am running MS Exchange 2013 CAS/MDB and an Edge Server in my environment. When I set up the Edge Server I had to run a power-shell command to promote it and join it to the Exchange Server. I am now thinking of going with a different solution for my spam filter such as Proxmox Email Server or Mailcleaner. My question is, do I need to do anything specific to demote the Edge Server? Or can I just install the new appliance and point my firewall to the new mail gateway?

Thanks in Advance.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Burl,

You need to use the Remove-EdgeSubscription cmdlet, you can then decomission that server.
