how to properly demote a DC located on another site?

Last Modified: 2015-08-28
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?
