Add domain controller on LAB SCCM server?


I have a lab environment with an SCCM  2012 server  (sql locally) and a domain controller (Windows 2016).
Would like to eliminate the domain controller and just install it next to the sccm server (it's a lab after all, just need one serer).

Can I just install domain services on it, then bring down my other DC? Other option is that I start from scratch, install DC, then add sccm to it.

I would think you would promote your SCCM server to a DC using dcpromo, then transfer all of the FSMO roles ( to the new DC from the old DC, shutdown the old DC and see if everything still works.
