I'm in the process of decommissioning my primary dc "C". I've transfered the roles to the new dc "N". And all is well. I just shut down C and again all is well. I've been following KB 298138, to move my CA. When I got to the note "The new server must have the same computer name as the old server. " All well and good, but I'm afraid to name anything C, won't it be mistaken for my old dc. Our CA issues mainly User cets for our wifi authentication.
Do I simply have to remove C from DNS, and AD (anywhere else I should check?), prior to adding the new C to the domain? Should I mention that C and new C are both VMs?
Is it best to have the CA on a server that isn't a dc?
Are there other issues to consider?
