How do I terminate a domain?
Posted on 2007-10-19
Hello. We have two domains operating on the network. One is the new, current domain (lets call it current.com) and the other is the old one (lets say old.com). I am moving the PCs in the office over to the new domain, and will evenutally have no-one using it. My question it two-fold. First is how to i stop the domain and have the server it's join the current domain. Second is what would happen to any PCs that are still joined to the old.com domain once it's stopped? I am aware of the DCPROMO and DCDEMOTE commands (that they exist.. rather than what to do with them!). I know that the server (win 2003) is the DC for the old.com domain, and has all the "roles" and the the DC for the current.com domain does too for its domain.
All servers are running Win 2003, and all PCs are Win XP Pro SP2. Not sure what else you;d need to know to help.
