After installing the latest patch for Microsoft. My DC which runs DNS, DHCP and WINS no longer run. under services, the status is stopping to which you cannot do anything. If I open COntrol Panel, the window would open but the icons (e.g. add/remove programs, fonts) would not show up. I cannot even get out on the internet.
My domain (in San Jose, CA) belongs to a domain in Toronto linked via MPLS.
Needless to say, I need guidance on rebuilding a new DC with a new machine name, new IP. I have all the other settings documented.
On this new machine, I set the DNS and WINS IP as the machine name's static IP. When I try to join the domain, it tells me that it cannot find it.
PS if you guys dont' mind cc'ing a copy of your responses to email@example.com.
