Sharepoint 2013 Recovery from Previous Network

I had a production sharepoint 2013 server that the production network no longer exists so I re added it to a new domain - however when I pull up the sites it says site not shared.

Is there a way to add the rights somehow or am i better off rebuilding it?  My only concern is that there is one site container that was used as a help desk that I am hoping to recover

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

If you added it to a new domain it means none of the user names in the SharePoint database are valid, as they would be olddomain\username.  You need to migrate your users using this commane.

Might double check your service accounts in Central Admin, make sure everythign is using the new domain.  I'm assuming you are using network service or local service though, since the site loads (and throws an error).

It is actually the same exact domain as previously - should I run the above command or not necessary just check service accounts?

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.

yes, It was the administrator account which i readded but no dice on getting in

Would it be worth exporting the help desk site and rebuilding the sharepoint server to be on the safe side?  If so can this be done from within the Centeral Admin?

Thank you again

What do you mean by "which I readded"?  What did you re-add it to?

Readded may not be the best choice of words since it was joined to a new DC with same domain name

Ok so if you log onto a machine as that admin account, can you access the site?

If I'm understanding you correctly, this server (I'm assuming SharePoint and SQL are on the same machine) previously worked.  Then it was removed from it's existing domain and added to a different domain that has the same name.  Correct?

I can not access the site which now that I think of it has to do more with the active directory info missing from new domain controller so I started a repair of the sharepoint 2013. The only thing I can access is just the centeral admin site

That is correct on all of the info above
