Demote SBS 2003 Domain Controller from Domain

Last Modified: 2012-05-09

I have a 2003 SBS server which has gone on the fritz. i have purchased a 2008 R2 server which I have made a domain controller.

Will it cause any problems if I demote the 2003 SBS server and reformat it to a regular server (maybe promoting it afterwards)?
