Problem removing Domain controller

Using dcpromo when I get to the screen to remove AD and leave the last DC unchecked, I get the warning that no other DC can be contaced for that domain.  Is it safe to proceed?

Is this DC having other issues, if you run repadmin /showreps or dcdiag are there communication issues with other DCs.

IF it can't contact another DC you might have to forcibly remove the DC (/forceremoval switch)

Thanks
