What is proper way to disable DFS-Replication between 2 servers due to having to decommission one of the members for good and the server being decommissioned will not be replaced?

Thanks in advance

Current DFS-R setup:

Using DFS-Replication and not using DFS-Namespace

Server A and Server B in the replication group and are in the same physical location.

They are also DCs, just an FYI.

File server A was the primary member

Topology is Full Mesh

Multipurpose Replication group

The data size is about 1 TB.

After disabling the DFS-Replication, Server B will continue to serve as the file server so the data has to be intact.
