The 30mm axle nut does NOT get removed to remove a rotor. The 17mm caliper bolts must be removed to removed the caliper, and the rotor will come right off.

Under normal circumstances, the drum should slide right off once the wheel is removed.
If you have built up rust holding it on, there are two threaded holes near the center of the drum to aid in removal.
Insert two 12mm bolts into the holes and, while adding plenty of lubricant, turn the bolts in even amounts until they push the drum off.
Be sure to keep them lubed, as they will strip out easily if not.
If you have aftermarket drums without the holes or the screwholes are stripped out, smacking the face of the drum with a dead blow hammer will help free it up, but takes much longer for success.

And make sure you pay special attention to the proper torque when you put it back on as well as take care when you remove this since the bearing are apt to fall out.

Usually about 9/16. It should be SAE not metric, but if the standard is slightly loose, then you may be best off switching to metric socket.
