  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting in TechNet.

    Do you have local administrator account?

    To remove the computer from the domain all you need is a local administrator username and password to put the computer back into a Workgroup.
    1. Click Start
    2. Right click Computer
    3. Click Properties
    4. Under Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings click Change settings - you will need to have the local 5. Administrator account details to hand
    6. A new window will open with some tabs - Click the first tab Computer Name
    7. Click Change to rename this computer or change its domain or workgroup
    10. Select the Workgroup radio button
    11. Enter a workgroup name - you will need to re-use this on the other computers
    12. Click OK
    13. You may be asked to provide local Administrator account details again
    14. When the computer is joined to the new workgroup you will be asked to restart your computer - do so as this is crucial.

    Best Regards,

    Eric
