Here is the error on my Event Log:

Event ID: 1011
Multiple domain controllers running Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server have been detected in your domain. To prevent this computer from shutting down in the future, you must remove all but one of these from the domain.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

Event ID: 1012
Multiple domain controllers running Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server have been detected in your domain. This computer will shut down in 60 minutes unless you remove all but one of these from the domain.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

(and the link doesn't help on how to fix it)

as the error message says. you have more than 1 SBS server in your current domain. the small business edition is limited to 1 domain controller per domain.

shutdown or downgrade one server.

The problem is that I have only one server. How do I remove this? This HAS never been a problem up until yesterday.
