Removing last Windows 2003 server from domain. Receiving prompt to remove Certificate Services.


I am removing the final Windows 2003 server after having migrated all Active Directory roles (FSMO) to 2 other Windows 2008/Windows 2012 servers.

When I run dcpromo on the Windows 2003 server, I am receiving the following prompt message:

Active Directory Installation Wizard

Before you can install or remove Active Directory, you must remove Certificate Services.  For information about the consequence of removing Certificate Services, see Help And Support.
Remove-Certificate-Services.JPGI had previously shut down the Windows 2003 server to check if any issues floated up, but there were none.

Any suggestions would be welcome.
