Remove an Active Directory Domain Controller

In this article, we will see how to remove a domain controller in an Active Directory environment.

The deletion is done in two steps:

  • Demote the domain controller: remove the controller configuration.
  • Delete roles.

Before downgrading the server, ensure that the server does not have an FSMO role and always have at least 2 active Active Directory controllers.

If you want to destroy the Active Directory domain, disregard the above recommendations.
