Access denied when trying to delete DC after running DCpromo to demote

Last Modified: 2014-05-01
Hi all,

Trying to get rid of an old 2008 DC on a 2003 domain. Have built a replacement DC which setup as global catalog. Have successfully run a DCpromo to demote the server, but I cannot delete the server from sites and services. I get an access denied error. Have I missed something?
