I migrated to 2008r2 server and all went well except after a reboot it changed the server name to old pdc and now the server thinks it has 2 names. I think it lost its sid? Have no idea how to get it back. What else would explain when I change the ip address it changes it in dns and wins for both names. My domain is down because of this. Need urgent help. How many points can i give to get this fixed asap. OR if someone could tell me how to restore my old pdc that has already been demoted

On your domain controllers I would suggest doing (From a command prompt)

dcdiag /v > dcdiag.txt

netdiag /v > netdiag.txt

Do this from each dc and please post the results (masking any ip addresses) so that we can get a full picture of what is going on.

I needed to have it fixed by today, so I just virtualized a backup of the old server and I will have to redo the new server and try again.  Thanks for the efforts,
