Removing the link on a Server 2008 server
Posted on 2011-03-13
I have taken on a server which is Server 2008. It is currently replicating with another server in it's forrest which is a Server 2003 sbs server. The office I have taken over want's this link removed and they need to stand as their own domain locally. The local server currently logs them on the the local domain but only links to the other server for exchange which is not needed now.
Can I just remove the server from the forrest and break the VPN link, will everything still function OK?
Someone suggested I will need to run dcpromo to remove the server from the forrest and then run it again to create another domain and then re add the PC's to the new domain, is this the case?
