  • SBS 2003 Unable to remove roles

    I have 2 server one runnig SBS2003 and the other SBS2011

    the server that running the SBS 2003 was and still a domain controler runnig DNS and AD services

    now we have upgrade to the SBS2011 and I make it the domain controler running DNS and AD services it is working fine but now i want to add the SBS 2003 to the domain and i can not find how to remove the roles of the DNS and the AD. I have started dcpromo but im not sure im on the right way here.


    Please advice, Thank you

    You can't!
    Am SBS domain can have only one SBS server (any version) holding the FSMOs. It can have other DCs, so a solution might be to wipe the SBS 2003 box and install Server (any version but you must buy a license) and make that an additional DC

    Also note after a certain amount of time (I think 1 month but it may be as short as a week), all hell will break loose if you have both SBS servers in the same domain)

      Thank you I do appreciate it. I can not stop laugh about " all hell will break loose" I guess you talking from exprience LOL

      I will get me 2003 STD or 2008 STD. and reload the server.

        IIRC "all hell" is the SBS boxes rebooting every hour, or something similar -- not conducive to a smoothly functioning network, anyway!
        Microsoft mention 7 days grace for a 2003 hardware refresh: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...(v=ws.10).aspx
        And here is the reference to the hourly shutdown: http://rangler.co.uk/?p=78
