  • remove additional dc

    Hi we have 3 domain controllers that successfully replicate information between them. I don't need the 3rd one. Can I just run dc promo and remove this domain controller without affecting the other domain controllers?

    should I check " this is the last domain controller or not? "

    Thanks

    No, you wouldn't want to check that.

    I take it you've tried and that message has come up?....
    If so then you need to transfer any FSMO roles it has to one of the other DCs. http://www.petri.com/transferring_fsmo_roles.htm

    Also make sure at least one of the other DCs is a Global Catalog server.
