Remove Stale DC
Posted on 2009-07-09
In active directory I have a server listed as a DC that is no longer serving that role. It appears the server at one point was reloaded, but the admin failed to demote it before proceeding. In addition, the server was renamed exactly the same and rejoined as the member of the domain.
All roles and services are running properly on their corresponding servers, and their are no roles to seize back.
Since a replacement server has been installed on the network with exact name I am unsure if I can run the standard remove orphaned DC procedure.
Any suggestions on how to move forward? (besides renaming the server?)
