MSMQ object remaining from demoted domain controller

    I recently upgraded my primary domain controller to a Win2k3 R2 server and
    transferred all FSMO roles to it. I have gradually been demoting the Win2k
    domain controllers to member servers only. However, in Active Dir Sites and
    Services, the MSMQ object still remains for one demoted Win2k server (the one
    that originally was created for our domain).

    Can I safely delete this object, or does it need to be transferred to
    another domain controller (and how)? I do now believe we have any apps using
    MSMQ, but not sure if it is used in other ways.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

  2. that object is there because the MSMQ service is installed on the server. Is
    that server still alive?

    Remember, sites and services are not just for DCs. Those are for service
    providing certain services which can be DCs and member servers
