Hi guys, i have a domain controller that crashed. I had to run a repair too fix, but it put the OS in a basic state. However i still have the ntds files and other system files i presume, its just that the roles and it even being joined to domain has all been blanked out. This is one of 15 other DC's on our network. How can i cleanly rebuild this DC, with there being no backups and only the files i mentioned above?
