    Ok guys first post and i startoff with this :),

    I have a Windows 2003 server environment, with 2 separate servers both have different roles.

    data-srv1
    Primary DC
    Primary DNS
    WINS
    DHCP Server
    Exchange 2003 Server(With OWA enabled and in use)
    Apache Webserver

    data-srv2
    Secondary DC
    Secondary DNS
    RAS VPN Server
    Fax server

    Now the problem is that data-srv1 is very and i mean very messy. Lots of half-removed software rubbish ect. ect.
    What i would like to do is completely reinstall my primary DC to make a clean start.

    Problem is i don’t want to crash the entire network by reinstalling data-srv1, is there anyway that i can demotedata-srv1 and let dat-srv2 take-over all the tasks en revert this when data-srv1 is up & running again?

    The webserver is just for internal use and has a -10 priority in this manner.

    Any advice would be more than welcome!
