I get this error when I try to take my server out of the domain and into a workgroup.

The following error occurred attempting to unjoin the domain "the domain name"
An I/O operation initiated by the registry failed unrecoverably. The registery could not read in, or write out, or flush,
one of the files that contain the system's image of the registry.

What gives?
I did not set up this server so I don't know what has been done to this thing!


Thanks

Since you didn't give the exact event or other such details, I'll have to take a guess:

Most likely a drive failure?
