Reformatting SBS Server Advice - Keeping AD, DNS, and DHCP Settings
Posted on 2006-06-19
We have two servers here. Server1 has MS SBS 2K3 Premium installed, and is our primary DC, DNS, and DHCP. Server2 has MS Win 2K3 Standard installed and is our secondary DC and DNS.
Server1 has been doing some screwy things, and really just needs to be reinstalled. Also, our company has changed its name and so we want to change the name of our domain and the only way to do this with SBS is to reinstall the OS.
We would like to keep all of our security groups, policies, etc when we reformat and create the new domain. Is there a way to get all this information and bring Server2 on to the new domain?
What about DNS & DHCP information?
