I did a mailbox move installation to new hardware some time ago and have left the old server in the System Manager but feel comfortable with removing it completely  now. I havent been able to find the complete process for doing this only a part using the ADSE to go in and edit that part. Does anyone have the link to the procedure for removing an old server from your Exchange setup. Thanx in advance for any help with this.

Follow this article. Here are some good tips.

1. Once you go through the article to rehome all roles, shut the server down for couple days to ensure that everything has been moved over and no issues exist

2. Always try to uninstall the old server cleanly meaning go to either add remove programs or insert the cd to remove rather than deleting through ADSIEDIT or ESM. This is because if you delete through ADSIEDIT, you're only deleting references within the server container. There may be references elsewhere.
