Rear disc (rotor) removal, E450 1999

I have a 1999 Ford E450 based RV (Class C Gulfstream Cavalier). The rear brake discs need to be removed for skimming (yes, I let the pads wear down!).
I've removed the calipers and half shafts but not sure what's holding the discs on. There are 2 recessed holes which might have had retaining screws inside, but I don't think so - if so the heads are totally smooth, and would have to be drilled. Can anybdy tell me what I should be undoing next? Thanks!

OK, done it now, the nut which retains the hub/disc assembly has cut-outs so you can tap it round until it's unscrewed, then lift off the hub/disc and outer bearing. An air gun was needed to unscrew the 8 torx headed bolts holding the disc to the hub. Nobody within 30 miles had any torx sockets, but a standard impact socket did the job! The disc was then supported between 2 wooden blocks, and a piece of tubing found, of the correct size to drive the disc and hub apart (square tube proved to be OK). A few relatively gentle taps with a sledgehammer did the rest.
