Failed to configure the service NETLOGON as requested.


Issue:

Performing dcpromo to demote Win2k3 server Failed to configure the service NETLOGON as requested

Failed to configure the service NETLOGON as requested. "The wait operation timed out"

dcpromo.log is the following:
 [INFO] Informed NETLOGON to deregister records
 [INFO] Stopping service NETLOGON

Resolution:


Change the first DNS setting on your network card to point to your new DNS server, not the server you are currently demoting.
Once you change the DNS setting to the new DNS server you should be able to demote the server without any issues.
