I run dcpromo to demote a DC to normal server. However, it still exists in AD sites and services, but there is no connection to it. Do I have to delete it from "AD Sites and Services" manually? Thanks.

which will remove the demoted DC from AD sites and services

I hope this will for u.

Thanks & Regards,
Vlvpk

    Hi vlvpk, thanks for the direction. The process of the DC demotion should be completed without any error. I just assumed that the old-DC should be removed from the "AD Sites and Services" tree. Is it normal that the computer name still exist in the tree after demotion? Thanks

    I have go though the metadata cleanup procedure, but the already-demoted DC is not in the server list. Therefore, I simply delete that server from the "AD Sites and services", as stated in the end of same document. Thanks very much
