I have a windows 2003 domain... 8 Domain controllers, 4 sites, so basically 2 DCs per site.

My Primary DC is the oldest server we have and we are wanting to shut it down.

What steps do I need to do? What commands, and what do I need to do before demoting the DC? It has all the server roles on it.

Thanks in advance.
