My server has recently crashed. I have ordered and received a new windows 2008 server. I want to maintain the same server name and IP address as the old one had. If I install this server as the primary server with the same name and IP as the old one, will I be able to connect all the clients as if the old one were still there after restoring the backups which has the share names, etc?
Will I have to use DCPromo or will this one already know it is the only server on the network?
