Considerations to make prior to demoting a DC
Posted on 2011-02-21
So I have a DC that is not replicating, apparent has not been replicating for a quite a long time. It resides at a branch site with only 3 DCs...
B/c of the time in which the DC has not been repliating, and the fact that we their are only 3 PCs on site, I thought I would simply do the following (let me know if I am wrong here):
1. Update DNS in the DHCP scope to have the PCs resolve using the other DNS servers located at other sites within the VPN (Note their are 4 other DCs in the evironment with DNS. Network is in a MESH.
2. Adjust the Sites and Services to login to another assigned DC.
3. Proceed to demote the crippled DC, so It is gone from the network for ever. Am I missing something?
