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

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

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

    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!
