run dcpromo to change back to standalone server, after that run dcpromo again to create a new DC.

Good luck,
Peter

This is holds if the computer is a member server. If the computer is a domain controller on a single server network the change and advanced tabs are greyed out.

I will accept the answer, but it does invlove rather a lot of work as the active directory is wiped and then re-installed. Do you know of any way the domain name can be changed without having to reset all usernames,access rights etc.
