Hello,

I have a dormant Domain Controller that is no longer "alive" and I cannot seem to remove it from the Active drictory.

The physical server has since been rebuilt so I can't run the server back up as its good old self.

I foolishly didn't demote the Domain Controller before rebuilding it, and I also didn't remove the DNS service (which was AD integrated) from it as well.

Could someone please tell me how to completely remove this dormant server from the Active Directory.

Cheers.

adonis1976,

That seemed to work.

I'll let it run for a few days just to ensure I don't get any error, and then I'll credit you with the points.

Cheers.

No problem so far.

Thanks for that, call of duty.
