How do I remove RODC (W2K12 server-core) on perimeter network?

RhoSysAdmin used Ask the Experts™
I have a test RODC (running on Windows 2012 R2 server-core) that I created in a perimeter network that I'd like to demote and remove from my domain entirely.  I'm having trouble finding documentation for this scenario that covers the process from top to bottom.  

Can anyone point me to a good source of documentation for this task?

You should be able to demote the server as you would any other server - having it be an RODC shouldn't change anything.

Since it's Core, you'll use PowerShell.  Just make sure its DNS points to a regular DC for the process.

Here's the command:


Thanks for the confirmation.  I was already aware of this option for internal DC's.  Since we did allow access to a regular DC, this worked great.
