One of my DC's is failing to boot because the ntds.dit file has become corrupted. I can only boot the DC in Directory Services Restore mode. This DC is also the Global Catalog server in my domain of 3 DC's. I'd rather not do a forced demote on this DC because I'd then have to make another DC the Global Catalog server in the process.
Can I just simply copy the ntds.dit file from one of the other DC's and replace the corrupted file?
