How to remove Active Directory on a single server

Guest

Hi, I have a Windows 2000 server with Active Directory installed and this is
the only server in AD. If I change the server to a workgroup, what would
happen to the accounts that are setup in Active Directory? I am having
problem in upgrading to Citrix Presentation Server v 4.0 that would not
install on a domain controller. Since this is the only server and I don't use
Active Directory other than to support Citrix. I would like to change the
server to workgroup instead of AD but like to keep the current user setup.

Can anyone tell me what I might get?

Thanks in advance
Che

The user object along with the rest of the AD data is kept in a different
data store than would be if you moved to a workgroup scenario. You would
lose all user/group definitions and have to start over.

Thanks Paul, is there a way for me to export the user information from AD so
that I can reenter them. Also, is there a way to export the group policy
setting I have made to the domain?

Thanks

This should output all user objects:
ldifde -f output.txt -r "(objectClass=User)" -l
"cn,givenName,Title,SamAccountName"
-or- net user /domain

If you are running 2003 you can print all gpo's via the gpo management
console
