Quick DC Recovery Question
Posted on 2006-11-23
Can somebody just confirm this for me, for my peace of mind.
We have a DC which failed yesterday, it held all the FSMO Roles, I siezed the roles and put them onto the second DC in that site, then ran Metadata Cleanup to remove the DC.
I have since rebuilt the failed DC (Repaired Hardware, Formatted Disk and reinstalled Windows). I have given it the same name as the previous failed DC, I am now ready to promote it to a DC again, I just want to know if it will cause any problems with it having the same name as the previous DC or should I call it something different to be safe?
