I left the server off for 5 days.
The Samba 4 DC Servers are apparently working fine.
Now, I am unable to demote Windows Server 2008 Server through the DCPROMO

DC = br.The specified domain either does not exist or could not be
The Replication between servers (Samba 4 and Windows) is OK.
Is it advisable for me to remove Windows DC manually?
