Demoting Server 2003 DC

Hi,

Just wanted to get some clarification on if I am doing this right.

Server-01 is a Server 2003 R2 DC with Certificate Authority and is the Schema master

I want the server to be just a member server, with the CA on it.

My thoughts where:

1) transfer Schema to other DC/GC
2) Backup CA
3) Uninstall CA
4) Run DCpromo and demote to member server
5) Install CA back on to server-01 and restore from backup

Can you see any flaws in my plan?

Many thanks

Brian

Looks good, is the box also a DNS server or hold any other roles/functions?

Thanks

Yes it has DNS integrated into AD. This was the first DC for the forest, quite a few years ago, I have transferred the other FMOS roles over to the Server 2008 R2 DC now.

Thanks
