    Demoting a 2008r2 server has not removed all roles.

    It has been a while since I last demoted a server but think something has slightly gone wrong with the one I just ran.

    Did the normal dcpromo and demoted, rebooted server.

    In the 'server manager' 'roles' section I still have 'Active Directory Domain Services' and 'DNS Server' listed. I seem to remember the last time I demoted these were removed automatically.

    If I click on 'Active Directory Domain Services' I get ' This is not a domain controller, run dcpromo

    If I click on 'DNS Server' I get a ton of errors in the logs but all zones are empty.

    How do I remove these without causing any issues.
