you can do that, and then decommission server0, if you wish, by
removing it from all the CellServDB files (and making sure to restart
the servers on server1).

but then server0 will be not a server at all, ever. basically, the
issue is server0 if it has the lower (numeric) IP address cannot be a
server sometimes. either you're using it, or you're not.
