Is the Certificate Authority service required in a Windows 2003 Server Active Directory domain?
I have an old domain controller back on the network that I'd like to remove AD from using DCPROMO. When I run the dcpromo tool I receive an error about the CA being installed on that server. I need to remove it before demoting the server.
This server has been off of the network for a few months. Is the CA even required in a Windows 2003 Server domain? Will removing it affect my other domain controllers (my PDC is actually another server).
