How do I promote a second server in Exchange 2000 and retire the old one?

How do I promote a second server in Exchange 2000 and retire the old one? Basically, I want to move Exchange 2000 from the first server to the second server in the site and retire the old server. In Exchange 5.5, you need to change the role of the first server in the site to the new server. How is that done in Exchange 2000?

The process is very similar to what is done in Exchange 5.5. The Exchange 2000 procedure is documented in How to remove the first Exchange 2000 server computer from the site. Also have a look at How to rehome public folders in Exchange 2000.
