  • Correctly remove 2003 domain controller from network

    I'm going to make preperations to remove
    a domain controller out of our companies
    active directory tree. This server is windows 2003
    domain controller located in a remote office
    connected to my location where the main controller2003 controller is located with a T1.
    I'm going to remove the remote server from active directory sites and services and re-point replication to servers in the home officeIs this ok????

    .My goal is to correctly remove this remote server from our domain correctly with no issues.
    .What else should I be doing ?? AND this also be done after.
    .the T1 is disconnected.

      Change DNS to point at the head office DC
      (note if your VPN is down you will have issues)
      Run DCPROMO on the branch DC and do NOT select "this is the last DC in the domain"

      And thats it really...
