I want to shut down and old Windows 2008 domain controller. Not remove AD just power it down.
I have DHCP role running on another DC
I have made sure my other DC has GC and all FSMO roles
DNS is also on my other domain controller.
All my machines in their DNS entries use my other domain controller.
I would like to just power it down and keep it handy but was wondering if there are any problems with just shutting it off- did I forget anything? Or should I go through the DCPROMO procedure and remove it as a DC? Thanks.
