    I have a domain that I'm running several xp professional machines on. Well,
    since I'm using a DNS sometimes I need to remove a machine from the domain
    and then reinstall it into the domain. I have no problems inserting a
    machine into the domain, how do I remove one from the domain? I have all of
    the administrator capabilities. It appears that in order to remove one from
    a domain I must either put in in another domain or a workgroup. Please I
    need help.

  2. That is correct. To remove a domain client machine from a domain requires
    the machine to join a workgroup or another domain. You could also delete
    the machine accounts at the DC and rejoin the clients to the domain.
