MECM - IBCM configuration question

We have IBCM setup and configured, and it's been running successfully for a couple of years now. However, it was all installed on our Primary site server. Now, we'd like to remove the DP role on this server. So my question:

1) Can IBCM use a DP that is NOT on the same box as the MP it is connecting to?

2) If not, has anyone gone through the process for moving IBCM from one site server to a new, dedicated one?

    Hi, @Joe Heaton

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    As far as I know, when we configure IBCM, we always install the primary site in work network with the internal DP and MP, then install a site server in the DMZ with DP and MP to respond to internet clients' requests.
    So, when you say "it was all installed on our Primary site server", it's not very clear to me, would you have a more detailed description about your IBCM configuration?

    Allen, thank you, that's the answer I was hoping for. Do you have any kind of documented process to do this?
