Demoting Win2000Server Box from DC status.
Posted on 2007-03-18
I have a Dell PE600SC running Windows 2000 Server. It has Exchange 5.5 on it and was only being used as an Exchange box and a file server (or so I was told). I am trying to transfer the public folders from this box to our new SBS2003 server. As I was getting ready to join it to the domain of the SBS box, I discovered that it was configured as a domain controller and so SBS cannot accept it into the SBS2003 domain.
I need to "demote" it so I can join it to our new domain and then hopefully run the pub folder migrate utility to pull in the pub folders from 5.5.
I am stuck at thsi point.
