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

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.

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