Demoting an AD DC and DNS Server to member server
Posted on 2007-08-06
I have a AD DC and DNS server that I want to demote to a member server or remove from AD so I can rebuild it and use it as web server. Currently there are 3 DC on our company. Can I just run dcpromo and demote the server, or is there anything else that has to be done to accomplish this? I want to make sure that by demoting this DC/DNS server AD is not affected nor Exchange. Is there any role on the DC that I would need to transfer to another DC?
This DNS server is being used as the secondary DNS server for the users. Will the users be affected if I demote the server?
