  • Remove replication/CA problems

    We have a very old server which was providing replication for the main (GC) server. It's dead. I want to remove replication but I can't run dcpromo because I get the error "you must remove certificate services" I don't remember why I even installed certificate services in the first place. Anyway, I have seen many web pages on removing the certificate services role but I am also hampered by the fact that the AD Admin Center will also not start.

    In brief, what's the best way to do this? I don't need replication. A pointer to the easiest documentation would be much appreciated.
