I'm not sure how to proceed having read the various warnings on the
wiki. I have a DC which was to be decomissioned, but unfortunately it
was powered down before being demoted.
To complicate the bungling, it held some FSMO roles which have been
seized with (one with --force) to another DC.
The wiki warns that removing using ADUC will create a potential memory
leak situation on the remaining DC leading to OOM. However, my DC is
functional and can be brought online. It's been off about a week and as
I mentioned before had the FSMO roles seized while powered off.
Any recommendations on next steps?
