If you are referring to a Windows computer, then you should log into it 
and leave the domain in the normal Windows way. A Unix domain member is 
similar, you just run 'net ads leave -U Administrator' in a terminal

if, after the computer leaves the domain, the computers object is still 
in AD and you wish to remove it, you can do this with 'samba-tool 
computer remove'
