One of our clients has been running an extremely old server with Server 2003 installed. The RAID array containing the OS installation failed during a power outage (they are SCSI drives) and I was forced to rebuild it.
This environment has only that one server, no offsite backups, and a handful of aging XP machines.
I've recreated AD now, and used the exact same domain name as before, and a different static IP. As of now I have not added any users or machines to Active Directory.
What is the best/least painful way to proceed with rejoining these XP machines to the "new" domain? Is there any way to avoid having to create new user profiles?
Thanks so much!!!!
