    my enterprise domain is on windows 2008r2 (e.g myCompany.local) and one of my subdomains is on windows 2003 (eg Sub.myCompany.local).

    I remove the subdomain Sub.myCompany.local successfully. But when i try to connect to domain by othe clients i see SUB in the list of domains that client that connect to it.

  • Hi,

    FYI - The best method to demote a domain is, while demoting the last domain controller for a domain, you need to select the option This server is the last domain controller in the domain option in the DCPromo tool, which removes the domain meta-data from Active Directory. 

    From your details, I remove the subdomain Sub.myCompany.local successfully. But when i try to connect to domain by othe clients i see SUB in the list of domains that client that connect to it.

    This is due to the domain meta-data is not removed from the Active Directory.

    >>But when i try to connect to domain by othe clients i see SUB in the list of domains that client that connect to it

    If we delete the "SUB" from the list, will it come back?  

    Best regards,
