We currently have two DC's for our one domain but as of now do not have anyone actually authenticating to them so I'd like to take the chance to install it correctly. The domain was setup before I was hired and was done sloppily and is also using the correct naming structure as per this MdMarra post. https://web.archive.org/web/20200214122247/http://www.mdmarra.com/2013/04/best-practices-for-configuring-new.html
I've decommissioned DC's in the past, seized/transfered roles, etc; but have never tried to completely remove a domain from the network. Will the "/forceremoval" switch + removing metadata be enough?
I'd really like to avoid re-installing Windows.
Other Info: Both on Server 2008 R2. Both have DNS installed. DC1 resides in 192.168.1.x/24 AND 192.168.2.x/24 and runs DHCP for both subnets. DC2 is on 192.168.2.x/24.
