rebuild of DNS and Active directory
Posted on 2007-07-29
I need to rebuild a domain controller in a remote location.
We have two windows 2003 Server standard edition servers in our main site, these servers both have active directory, one of them is a dhcp server and the other is a dns server.
We also have a remte site that has a windows 2003 server standard edition, that is running dns, and active directory. Active directory was synchronizing properly between the sites up until about two months ago. At this time it looks like Active directory has to be resynchronized from scratch.
I think the problem is due to dns not working properly in the remote site.
I believe I must rebuild both dns and active directory on the server.
Can anyone tell me how to remove and reinstall DNS, and how to remove the active directory information and start resynchronizing it with the remote site.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
