Removing DC from the domain

Last Modified: 2012-08-14
I have domain and 2 domain controllers , one Win 2003 and one Win 2008 R2
I am trying to remove the 2008 DC from the domain.

When I use dcpromo,it indicates that the 2008 DC is the last controller in the domain, at least no other controllers where found. 'When I check Delete the domain because this server is the last controller in the domain' the server tells me its not the last DC in the domain and it is unwilling to process the request.
