demoting a domain controller
Posted on 2006-06-16
I am trying to demote an old server and take it off line, well put it as a domain server for now, eventually takiing it offline. I have two domain controllers, both configured with Windows 2000 server. When I run dcpromo from the server I want to demote, I am getting this error. I checked and it was a global catalog server, but now my other server is the global catalog server, if that makes a difference.
"A domain controller could not be contacted for the domain xxxx.com that contained an account for this computer" and then the demotion fails.
