How to Remove AD without Demoting DC

By ordainedit ·
My root DC crashed and we rebuild the domain. The downstream DC's will not demote due to no DSA object found access denied etc. Is there a way of removing the AD manually from the Server to get it to a state of stand alone so that I can promote it again ? Help please anything ?!

Did the server that crashed hold all the FSMO roles? If so, you will need to redistribute these using the ntdsutil
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q255/5/04.ASP

After this is complete and the new roles are redistributed, you will be able to operate normally again.

The answer is actually go to regedit to HKLM\CurrentControl\ Change Key LanmanNT to ServerNT reboot. Kill the ntfrs folders and that is it.
