Delete failed domain controller from Active Directory

Print Friendly

In the case you have a failed domain controller where there is no option to delete him using dcpromo utility, yau have to follow the above prcedure:
Login to an active domain cotroller and open a command prompt.

C:\metadata cleanup
C:\connect to server servername
C:\select operation target
C:\list domains
C:\select domain 0
C:\list sites
C:\select site 0
C:\list servers in site
C:\select server 0
C:\remove selected server

After removing the server with ntdsutil we have to remove him from the Active Directory Sites and Services snap-in and from the Active Directory Users and Computers.
