When I run DCPROMO on our old 2008r2 DC I keep getting the message that I need to uninstall the ADSS, however, I already uninstalled the role (after I transferred the certificates to our new 2016 DC). I get the same message even when I try to use dcpromo /forceremoval.
That being said how can I manually remove a role that is no longer installed or how can I direct DCPROMO to ignore this message? Please advise.
