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?

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