We have a windows 2003 primary domain controller and a windows 2000 secondary
domain controller. The windows 2000 secondary domain has been offline for a
few weeks. When brought back online we attempted to run dcpromo to demote
server to a member server. We are using a domain admin account but receive
the following error message: Logon Failure: The target account name is
incorrect". The following is from the dcpromo.log file.

Do we have to manually remove the DC because it hasn't replicated in over 4
weeks? If so how do we do that?

Thank You.
Ray.

Actually I had tried that as well previously and was still getting the same
message. I went and reinstalled sp4, and re-ran dcpromo /forceremoval and it
worked.

Thanks.

You will have to go back now and clean up your metadata.
