Hello pcnetnet,

Just to understand you correct, the last DC from the subdomain is demoted
and you have only the old subdomainname listed in the root domain? What's
the part about user creation in a non-existing domain?

Or was the only domain controller deleted in Active directory without demoting
it? Then see here:

See here about removing a domain:
