Restored Domain Controller from old Ghost, don't want old AD data.
Posted on 2007-07-30
I have two domain controllers, Server 2003, sp1.
One is DC1, the other DC2.
DC1 had all the roles. Recently, the DC1 HD crashed.
I successfully seized/transfered all the roles to DC2 and DC2 is running fine as the lone DC.
Now I restored DC1 from a ghost, but the ghost is 4 months old and there have been many Active Directory changes in those 4 months.
Currently, I have the ethernet cable unplugged from DC1 and it's up (the ghost worked) but I'm afraid to plug it into the network.
How do I make sure that DC2 is the boss, and that all the new data will remain unchanged and that DC1 won't try to re-establish or re-institute the old, out-of-date Active Directory?
