I have a Windows 2003 standard server with two NIC's that was once a domain controller. It has been demoted to a standalone server. Two XP pro workstations connect to it. One Nic is connected to a cable modem. The other is connected to a router. The server's name is Server.companyname.local. The workstation names are: BackOffice.companyname.local & FrontOffice.companyname.local. The server's full name is: Server.companyname.local. How do I remove all traces of the former domain, without affecting current network connectivity? I can browse anywhere on the server I wish, through Network places, Windows Network. But Network Places does still show the server.local.
There are two NICs in the server. One connects to a cable modem, the other to a router. One Nic serves as the default gateway for the workstations, with the IP of 192.168.16.2. It hands out Ip addresses to the workstations.
Please help, software I am trying to install on server will not connect through workstations because of this issue.
