To remove the global catalog from the Source Server

Now we remove the GC from the source server
1.    On the Source Server, click Start, click All Programs, click Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Sites and Services.
2.    In the console tree, double-click Sites, and then double-click <sitename>.
3.    Double-click Servers, click the name of the Destination Server, right-click NTDS Settings, and then click Properties.
4.    On the General tab, clear the Global catalog option.
5.    Restart the Source Server.

hmmm so in reading that I’m thinking someone made a mistake there and in step number 3, I think you should be removing the tick box on the global catalog from the SOURCE server, not the destination server.

You can also do command line here (yes… the GUI gal just said command line)

dsmod server (ServerDN) -isgc yes (obviously ServerDN = name of the destination server)
dsmod server (ServerDN) -isgc no (ServerDN here = name of the source server)
