How to delete a data node

Hi there,
I would like to delete one of many data nodes in production.
There is stille plenty of space and the data node has only this role.
Life can be so simple: stop the service and delte the machine.
Is this all, or it someting to take care additionally or before doing this?
Any recommandations?
Thank you very much
Stefano

I just deleted the node - nothing more.
