I recently did a quite stupid thing. I moved the active directory folder on my server which is running Server 2000 by the way. Although i discovered my error and restored the file to its original location i am unable to get into active directory since it cannot seem to find the domain. Also it seems DNS is not working correctly now. Even though the dns numbers are showing up on the client computers i cannot get the those numbers to work on the client computers unless i put them in static. Any ideas on the easiest way to solve this problem. I had thought about demoting the server so that i can recreate active directory but that seems like a lot of work since i will probably have to resetup all my security. Any help would be appreciated. If anyone nows any good sites that can explain DNS and its interaction with Active Directory and DHCP that would be great also.
