What happens to application data when a Domain Controller is demoted
Posted on 2008-06-19
I have a home server that I set up as a DC. Wish I hadn't, but I didn't realise at the time what I was doing.
Anyway, now I'd like to demote the server. Fact is: I don't even need a domain controller. However, I'm not sure what all the consequences of demoting will be. I know I'll lose the GC, but what about existing applications on the server. What happens to them? Will I have to reinstall absolutely everything?
