Trying to transfer AD DS tree over to a new server. Both servers are running 2008 R2. I ran the AD DS wizard on the new computer and added it to an existing forest and can see and edit all users/computers but as soon as I shut the old server off the new server looses access.
In the end what I am trying to accomplish is having the New server act as the Host for AD DS. Hopefully this will allow the User profiles to be hosted on the new server as well. (I ran a backup of the user profiles last night and will be attempting to restore it to the new server)

This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
