win2k3 AD and application directory partitions.Locked
I need some help. I am trying to remove one of the win2k3 domain controllers from our domain, all of the roles where moved to different domain controllers.
When I try to run dcpromo and follow the wizard I get a screen with the following information:
Application Directory Partitions.
This domain controller holds the last replica of the following application directory partitions.
I have an option to continue and let wizard remove this application directory partitions or I can remove them using ntdsutil.
my questions are: can I remove this application partitions by using ntdsutil or dcpromo without any affect on our domain? or do I have to replicate them to a different domain controller before demoting this one?
Thank you for the help
