on our network we have 3 domain controllers, dc1, dc2, dc3. dc3 was a virtual image on a vmware machine. had problem with vm,and lost dc3,and could only restore from over a week, so instead deleted image, and recreated dc, now the question is, want to rejion the domain, and has references in active directory, do you just rejoin the domain, and run dcpromo again, or is ther some steps to do before this?
