Demoting a domain Controller

I'm running DCPromo to demote a domain controller in a domain.  I'm in the process of dismantling this domain.  I'm getting a error:
Active Directory Installation Wizard:
The operation failed because:
Failed to configure the service NETLOGON as requested
"The wait operation timed out"
OK

Is the NETLOGON service started?

If it isn't, start it and then run DCPROMO again.

It's started and it's on automatic too.
Quite often when running DCPROMO, I see the service started when you start DCPROMO, but then part-way through, the service is stopped.

Have you got any old DC's lurking on your Domain that are still in AD, but no longer contactable?

What do you get from running DCDIAG >c:dcdiag.txt

Please upload c:dcdiag.txt if you see errors.

Thanks

Excellent news - well done.
Glad that you got that going :)
I figured it out on my own
