dcpromo ForceRemoval




If I run dcpromo /ForceRemoval, to demote a domain
controller to a member server.

I understand that the server will be taken out of the
domain and put into a workgroup, at which point I'm going
to add the server back into the domain.

My question is, will I lose the permissions/rights the
server had before it was demoted from the domain, and
then put back into the domain?



The last time I did this I just ran DCPROMO with out the switch you
mentioned. It demoted the server to a member server and remained part
of the domain. Its computer account remained in AD.
