Hi dpacheco,

Don't know how would You try that command in powershell, but I do know how to demote Windows Server 2003.
On a domain controller, go to START, then click on RUN.
Type in dcpromo to open AD Installation Wizard and click on next.
On Remove Active Directory click next and continue to follow the wizard...

Thanks,
D.
