How to remove Active Directory from a Domain Controller when DCPROMO fails?
Posted on 2004-03-26
Trying to dcpromo-down a Domain Controller, getting this error:
Active Directory Installation Failed
The operation failed because:
The Directory Service failed to replicate off changes made locally.
"The DSA operation is unable to proceed because of a DNS lookup failure."
Microsoft articles abound on fixing the DNS in a domain but my DNS IS NOT BROKEN! I can ping every server by name from any server/workstation and all the srv records that should exist do exist.
This is some other problem.
Any idea what ACTUALLY is wrong?
