Remove old Domain Controller
Posted on 2009-02-12
I have an old domain controller that i need to remove.
This was a dc running dhcp. dns etc
dhcp has been removed and all our dhcp scopes have been modified to not include this server as a dns server, all apps have been removed etc.
Everytime we switch this machie off there is a few clients that are effected mainly in external sites.
Some clients on site just get prompted for a password and then they re authenticate and all is well, however it causes problems on other sites where users can not even log in.
This was a gc at one time
I know to remove completely we should demote it but would rather switch it off for a few days see what is affected then we can switch it back on, like we have had to do
I need to be able to get rid of this server, seems like something still needs it. ie replication / gc
