Adding back domain controller with the same name as one that was manually deleted?
We had a domain controller that failed and I removed it manually from the metadata. We now have a new server and would like to name it with the same name as the one that was manually deleted. When I went through the manual deletion there were warnings about never turning that machine on again. Does that apply to the SID or the name? Can I use the same name on a different server and promote it to be a domain controller?
