I have installed a new 2008r2 server in existing 2000 domaim.
Ran the necessary adprep and promoted the server to a DC.
Transferred all the roles. Moved DHCP.
NOW that the old server will not be used, do I .....?
* just unplug & remove the server
* demote it and then remove
How do I make sure there are no referneces to the old server?
Note: on the old server after the migration I cannot access AD Users & Computers or any of the other AD snap-ins.
I have a feeling that if I try to demote it will bark at me with errors.
>>>I did see a MS KB (887431) where this error is caused by a change in the default group policy. I did not want to correct and affect the existing domian.
Any best direction to take?
