windows 2012R2 server DC

Hi We have windows server 2012 R2 as DC then we added two adc to the domain... now we need to format the DC ( first domain Controller)... do i need to promote any of the adc to DC or what is teh best practice to do this?



If you remove the ADDS role, that will trigger a transfer of the FSMO roles. You'll then want to clean up the remaining entries in AD Sites and Services and in DNS.

As you mention you have added two new ADC in your domain, so first transfer FSMO roles on any of the new ADC. Then you can safely demote you DC.
