Default remove a server from multisrver setup question

Hi!

I am testing IspConfig on a multi servers setup since about 6 months and I am really really satisfied. Everything is working fine.

I have 4 servers on that testing setup: 2 DNS server, 1 master WEB + SQL server and 1 MAIL server. All OS are Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

I would like to know the best procedure to completely remove a server from this ISPConfig multi server setup, knowing that all the data (let's say mail accounts and messages) has been transfered on a separate system like Zimbra for exemple.

So without bothering about the data, what should I do to have a clean ISPConfig multiserver setup with no mail server at all configured on it?

Is there some pitfall somewhere or I just have to modify the DNS MX entries, delete the domains under the Email Tab, delete the Mail server from System -> Server services and remove the Mail server's IP from the /etc/hosts file?

Thanks!

Michel

Thats all from ispconfig's side.

One more thing that you might want to do is to remove the mysql root user that you added to access the mysql server from the IP address and hostname of your mail server to install ispconfig.
