That isn't a supported configuration.

Running DCPROMO on Exchange isn't supported either and will usually break Exchange.

Therefore the only option is to move Exchange to another server using the standard methods. Once Exchange has been removed you can then DCPROMO it out.

Anything else will break Exchange.

Simon.

Why are you closing the question when I have "confirmed" what you thought?
I am objecting to the question being closed in that way.
