Hi,

We've changed domains and now have 2. We've moved all the computers from the old domain to the new one except for the old Domain Controller. I basically want to turn the old DC into a "normal" computer and move it to the new domain. Is there a simple way to do this?

Hopefully this is nice and easy

Richard

Greetings riksweeney,
Is this Win2k/3 or NT?

Hi riksweeney,
I would say No.
The only good way is to reinstall the computer with client software.

Well, let's just say the short answer is:

If NT: No.  Rebuild
If 2K/3: Yes - run dcpromo to demote it.

Supposedly you can fudge this by simply disabling the Netlogon service..I've never personally tried it though.
