I’m new here and new to VMWare cloud servers, I have nine server 2008r2 servers. I needed to have one as a domain controller, which I bricked, so I promoted another while I waited to get that one reloaded. I joined the remaining 7 servers to that one and set up my user accounts. My users are in doing their thing and now I have completed the reload of the bricked one. I then moved all of the services from the temporary controller over to the rebuild, tested, all seemed good. After promoting to primary and more testing all still seemed good. I demoted the temp as it is a production server. When I tried to rejoin it to the domain, it reports that it cannot find the domain. DNS seems the culprit, but I just can’t seem to figure it out. Any suggestions of how I can resolve my dilemma?
