I put this together over the years. I hope it helps.

Decommission Process (Generic Process Outline)

Phase 1
. Application uninstall (surrender licenses, if applicable)
. Remove all monitoring specific to BU
. Delete ESM agent
. Decom backup
. Remove scheduling

Phase 2
. Change admin passwords
. Sanitize local storage
. Network off service for 24 hrs before Phase 3

Phase 3
. Power down server
. Remove non-OS disks
. Degauss hard-drive for server being disposed
. Disconnect all cabling (power, SAN, etc)
. Remove from rack
. Reclaim NW ports
. Place server in staging area (for shipment)
. Remove disk allocation from server
. Reclaim volume from server (NAS)
. Reclaim IP address (host-master)
. Delete FQDN record

Phase 4
