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.
08/01 08:57:29 [INFO] Request for demotion of domain controller

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.

The other solution I found that corrects these types of problems is this:

On the Non-Problem Server run the following command
NETDOM RESETPWD /Server:ProblemServer /UserDomain\AdministrativeID
/PasswordD:*

This is the OPPOSITE of the solution that is suggested in article 826902 but
it does work. I've used it a few times.
