Dcpromo demote removes from the domain?

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Hello all

This is my first question here.

I got a server that is a slave controller today and was thinking of remove it from the domain completely. The thing is that i run a live DB on it and i was wondering what will happen when i do the demote? will it turn back to be a local machine and not being a part of the domain any more when i do the dcpromo? because if it does i will probably have some user problems running the DB.

Best Regards
