I have a 2003 R2 AD Domain.
One of the two DC's failed recently. It was not the one holding all the roles thankfully.
What is the simplest way to remove this. Should I first add another DC?
Additionally I do have some 2008 R2 MEMBER servers as well as Win7 member PCs. What is the best method to upgrade the Schema.
I realize that you cannot detail every step for every post but I have seen the recommendations by Microsoft and I do not find their explanation clear.
If you could lay out the steps in Dummy language first I appreciate it as I do not like taking action on such critical systems without being sure what I am doing is safe.
