  • Removing a 2K DC

    Just wanted to know what steps/precautions I need to do to remove an older 2000 DC. There are still 2 other DC's in the Active Directory, but the server in question has outlived it's usefulness and needs to go.

    I figure I need to run dcpromo and demote it to a stand alone server and then just shut it off. Should I/do I need to check any FSMO roles before doing this?

    Thanks

    I would check that all fmso roles are taken by other DC's first and then run DCPROMO as you said. once that has done it's thang, I'd check DNS had cleared up properly.

    Is this DC doing anything other than AD stuff? if not, you should be ok to either turn it off or leave it on and reuse it in another role at that point.

      Thanks. No, the services it performed have been transferred to other servers and it's now time to retire the old girl...permanently.
