Here is the situation.
We have a DC that was never backed up. The company data on the server was but not the system state, AD, etc. There are 5 DC's throughout the domain.
The DC got corrupted and now it won't boot. I am getting the error below after attempting to "repair" the Windows installation (see attached image).
Can I simply cleanup the metadata, reinstall Windows 2003 R2, give the server the same name / IP address and then promote it?
What else am I missing here?
This is a disaster situation for us here and the IT department definitely failed. Now I'm just trying to minimize the downtime.
Any help would be appreciated.
