Subject: [MSUNAG] Error when demoting a DC?
I attempted to demote a domain controller, and right after starting
dcpromo, the operation failed with the following oh so descriptive error
Failed to configure the service NETLOGON as requested The wait
operation timed out.
Any ideas where to start here? I have no idea what it's complaining
