Windows 2000 Server fails dcpromo /forceremoval.

I'm trying to demote a windows server 2000 DC but I'm getting errors even when I use dcpromo /forceremoval. Can I use the NTDSUTIL tool to remove it and if so do I have to do anything else after it is complete? Thanks

This is an old box that will be removed when done. I have two other dc's on the network with the primary dc managing the FSMO roles. If I understand all I have to do is following the link you provided and I'm done?
yes but shutdown that 2000 box down too.  

Thanks

Should I shut it down before before I run ntdsutuil or does it need to be on while removing it?
Hi

Shutdown the 2000 machine and run the ntdsutil from fsmo server and follow steps in the link which mike provided.

Thanks
Jai
