My question is regarding Active Directory Installation Wizard.

I want to know if there is an easy way to forcibly remove Active Directory from a Domain Controller in Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2000.

If there is a quick and easy way, how can I perform it?

Thank you.

Hi,

You should be a member of domain Admin group if you want to perform this action. If you are then do the following

  1. Click Start, click Run, type the following command and then press ENTER:

    Dcpromo /forceremoval

  2. At the Welcome to the Active Directory Installation Wizard page, click Next.

  3. At the Force the Removal of Active Directory page, click Next.

  4. In Administrator Password, type the password and confirmed password that you want to assign to the Administrator account of the local SAM database, and then click Next.
