A client of mine has one terminal server which is domain controller.  This server is running server 2000.  I have to remove this server off of the domain and upgrade it.  I have transferred all of the fsmo roles away from the machine onto two other domain controllers and it is not handling dhcp, dns, or wins.  Before i take it down for the upgrade, i need to keep it running terminal services becuase of there outside sales guys that need to connect to work.  

If i dcpromo it will it break terminal services or do i have to remove terminal services first and then dcpromo it, then make it a terminal serices server agian?

Yes, you will have to do that as well.

Your security policies may change.  DCs have an additional layer of group policy applied to them, this may break some facets of your operation.
