Default Deleting a Work group from a domain

Help!!!

I have a domain and a work group, the work group is an exact copy of the domain...may cause confusion to users when looking in the directory to see the domain and the workgroup available...how do I remove the workgroup without affecting the domain?


thanks

In order for you to delete the workgroup, you can't have any of the machines "off" the domain.

Once you add a workstation to a domain, it stops belonging to a workgroup (of course).

If your PC's see other PC's belonging to a workgroup, that means there is a machine somewhere that is plugged into your LAN and is NOT part of the domain.

So make sure all of the PC's on the network are members of the domain.
