I'm rebuilding the server mentioned in this question.
However before I do blow it away I would like to move its operations off of it first. DHCP and ePO are taken care of and now all that is left is a demote for AD.
When following the dialogs it gives me an error of:
The operation failed because: Managing the network session with server.domain.local failed "Logon Failure: The target account name is incorrect."
I think my options are:
- If there is a fix/workaround I could use to demote this machine.
- Or nuke it now as it stands.
If I choose option 2 are there any specific things I need to do on my network to make sure it is nuked properly? Any possible gotchas?
Also if I do a dcpromo /forceremoval will I need to do anything else on my network?
Things I have checked:
- It is not an operations master server
- Turned off the global catalog (it still thinks it is one).
Thanks in advance.
