I have done following tasks to move roles of A to B  before removing A
from exchange organization: (here A is 1st Exchange server and 1st DC of
domain, B is the server where roles of A need to move)

1. Replicate all public folders from A to B.

2. Rehome offline Address Book folder from A to B.

3. Make B responsible to generate offline Address list.

4. Rehome Schedule + Free Busy folder from A to B.

5. Rehome Recipient Update Service from A to B.

6. Designate B to be the routing group master.

Now I have kept A shutdown. How do I make it confirm the all roles have
been shifted to B? 
And if there any additional thing I need to do before uninstalling
Exchange from A. 

Best Regards,
Osman Mahmud
