Hi... We have 3 DC's in a domain and I want to demote one of them as I don't even know why it was promoted in the first place. I ran dcpromo and it came up saying it was a global catalog server and I should make sure there is another global catalog server in the domain before demoting it. How do I find out if a server is a global catalog server? And if I don't have another one, can I move the global catalog server to another DC?
