shutdown because of EULA violation SBS 2003

Hi There,

I have demoted my domain controller from Widnows SBS 2003 beacause we dont use domain system in our company. Now after 2 days I found my server shutting down itself and when I checked the log, it says shutdown becasue of EULA violation.
I have done a research on the net and I found out that windows SBS 2003 has to be domain controller, now my question is whether I have reinstall the and deploy again the new windows with domain  controller or there is another way to keep everything back as before?

Thanks
Ali

Well...

What is it exactly that your SBS server is providing for you now?

If it's a simple fileserver, then there are any number of options available to you, including non-microsoft software solutions, including what many NAS hardware products will provide.

I have restored by server back to pervious setup since there is no solution for SBS OS to run without an ADS option.
