Decommission a DC

Got a small AD domain.

2 DC' a Hyper-V VM and the other a physical box

I want to decommission the VM (both are 2008r2)

All FSMO's are listed under the physical box

The Global Catalog is showing under BOTH DC's

Since the GC and FSMO roles are all showing under the one physical box, is there a problem with decommissioning the VM DC even though it says it has the GC??

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Not at all since both DCs are also GCs.

If the FSMO roles were on the VM, they would automatically transfer to the physical DC as part of the demotion process (if you didn't transfer them first).
