So I promoted a windows 2003 server to a DC after demoting another in the same site, the old server contained DNS, DHCP, etc. I forgot to point the new server's DNS to the primary controller, and then promoted it. Now when I try to log in I get the following error:
The system could not log you on due to the following error:
The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.
On the primary server, the DNS records still point to the old server. Is there a way to demote the new server via the command line? I can access the system using PSExec and running cmd.exe on it.
Thans in advance for you help!
