Look on the Microsoft support website for article Q307917 'How to remove the
first exchange 2000 server computer from the site'. There are some roles
which are only held on the first server in the Exch Org. The article explains
how to transfer them to another server before you remove the first.

Subject: [exchangelist] Post-Server Move

        Hi all,
        I successfully moved my Exchange 2000 from its original box to a new
machine. All accounts, public folders, default store, etc. are now on the new
machine. With that done I suspected that the original box being offline would
have no effect but in fact if the original box is offline then all Outlook
clients are offline as well. All clients are pointing to the new server.
        My thoughts are to disable the exchange services on the original box
and they can sit there in waiting as a restoration receptacle if ever needed.

        I would appreciate any thoughts as to why the original box still
needs to be online.
