We are about to decommission WAC server in sharepoint, can you please give pointers on how to properly remove it in Farm so that live sharepoint servers are not impacted.

Appreciate your response, thank you!

    Out of curiosity, are you permanently removing OWA from your farm? I thought it was considered required. Are you moving from one OWA server to a new OWA server?
