Crashed Domain Controller
Posted on 2011-09-18
I have a primary windows 2008 r2 domain Controller that crashed yesterday. I am going to have to rebuild it today. Good thing is there are few users on the domain currently, bad news is i have no backups.
I have an Exchange 2010 Server, SharePoint Server, Backup Domain Controller up and running currently. I tried launching the Exchange Management Console and add a user and it failed to attach to the domain. I am going onsite today to rebuild the DC is there anyone out there that has a good idea how to do this? I.E. build the dc with the same name and ip? use different name but same ip? Can i transfer FSMO roles with no backup?
Any help or direction on whats best?
Thanks in Advance.
