  • SERVER CORE : Unable to remove the DC role

    Hi ,

    Issue : Unable to demote a DC which is a server Core 2008

    This is the last DC in the domain. I have already demoted and deleted the domain.

    In the server core:

    dcpromo /AdministratorPassword:"password" /IgnoreIsLastDCInDomainMismatch:Yes

    the error:
    A domain controller could not be contacted for the domain recruit.local that contained an account for this computer. Make the computer a member of a workgroup then rejoin the domain before retrying the promotion.

    The operation failed because :

    "The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. " Active directory domain services was not removed.


    It is true that the domain does not exist, is there any other way to demote this AD from the server.


    Thanks
    Kasi VPS
