how to properly demote a DC located on another site?

Hello All,

I will be dismantling one of our branches. In this branch there is a lone DC Windows server 2008 R2, which eventually I will be removing physically, but before I plan to demote it.

This server is on another AD site and is a Global Catalog server but does not hold any FSMO roles.

What is the best way to demote it properly?

just run dcpromo as you normally would
with no fsmo roles, as long as it can talk to other domain controllers, should be fine
