Removing an Exchange server from the org - 28.Jan.2011 2:48:44 PM

Good afternoon,

A colleague of mine wiped out and rebuild what used to be our standby Exchange 2003 server at our disaster recovery site.

This server was part of our Exchange 2003 organization. It never intentionally hosted any mailboxes but there was a mailbox on it that is tied to our Avaya Messaging Server. We've not experienced any problems since the Exchange server was taken offline but now I need to remove the server from active directory and from the Exchange Org. Clearly, it would have been better if I knew that server was being shut down as I would have uninstalled Exchange properly, following the appropriate MS documentation.

Can anyone offer any "second-best" practices for removal in this situation? I want to make sure there aren't any unintended consequences if I start by deleting the Exchange related objects for that server from the Exchange 2003 admin console.

Additional information:

Two Exchange 2007 Hub Transport/CAS servers in a NLB cluster. Two Exchange 2007 mailbox servers in a CCR cluster. One Exchange 2007 HT/CAS/Mailbox server at our DR site as a SCR failover node.

One remaining Exchange 2003 server that is currently handling all inbound flow for the other servers. Only reason this server is still around is to host the voicemail mailboxes for our Avaya Messaging Server.
