REMOVING AND OLD DOMAIN?
Posted on 2001-06-18
I originally had a domain: domain1.com. I then added a new domain to the same forest: domain2.com. If I remove Active Directory from the Domain Controller in the original domain will it automatically modify the forest correctly or are there risks in doing this???
It is imperitive that the new domain (domain2.com) does not get corrupted or have problems. I am very concerned about removing active directory from the DC for domain1.com as the "default first site" for example which is the site that domain2.com is part of is listed as being in the object:
If I remove the active directory on the DC for domain1.com will it corrupt the forest since it was the first domain in the forest?
Thoughts? Warnings? Am I being overly concerned about this? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
