How to remove a Secondary DC?
Posted on 2007-11-17
I have a secondary DC with exchange installed on it. How should I remove it from the Domain?
The story behind: - this issues here has already been resolved but gives the details
"....Thank for that but it seems a little more complicated.
After posting my question I have turned on the Old Exchange Server and now all accounts seems like they should be.
As it appears the old exchange server has something to do with this.
The reson for the new server is that I made a mistake and made my Exchange server a secondary DC. From this moment on for the last 3 month I had to restart the server twice a day. After restart it worked fine for half a day, and after 8-12 hours of peration it stopped authenticating...
I investigated the issue and found that I was not supposed to make the Exchange server a secondary DC and there is no fix...so it was just matter of time to create a new one.
This weekend I took the time and built a new one, "XChange" .
XChange is part of the domain but not a DC. I have moved the mailboxes and the public folder store to the new server and all seems fine, except this user creation......."
Now the user creation problem is solved but I also want the old server to be removed...
