Hello Experts
Can I run an FTP site on a 2012 Server that is a domain controller.  The server in question was running our FTP site, but I had to make this server a domain controller over the weekend and if I remember correctly, all local users are removed from a server when it is promoted to a DC.  Can I have local users on a 2012 DC?  previously each ftp user had a local account and would login with their own username and password and only  had rights to their FTP folder.  

Thanks,
Carmen
