All servers running server 2003. Apparently last year one of the remote sites ceased to exist and the server was removed. I noticed whilst investigating some issues this DC held the Schema and Domain Role Owners Roles. I am looking for the best way to remove this server from AD sites and services and move the roles. I assume just seizing the roles from the powered off DC will be sufficient? After doing so can I just delete the powered off DC from AD sites and services and run a metadata cleanup?
