Child Domain Removal Windows 2003
Posted on 2011-10-13
So here is the problem that i am having. I work for a client that are a child domain in a larger companies domain. My client is the child domain. Basically the main domain is "maindomain.com" and our domain is "mydomain.com" so our domain is "mydomain.maindomain.com". i want to clarify that we have our own DC and Exchange servers in house. Honestly i don't know why this was done this way since we don't share any information with the other company.
Is there a way to remove our domain completely and keep it as "mydomain.com"? If so what is the best way on doing that? Or do you think it is easier if we just delete the existing domain (by demoting and removing the DCs) and creating a new one?
I really appreciate any input.
