OS - server 2003 running on esxi 5
I had a DC that had tombstoned. I removed it via metadata cleanup, I did not DCPROMO it as I was getting errors
I now have an old DC switched of (virtually) and gathering virtual dust.
I want to get it back on my network as a DC.
So, how do i do this?
1. Remove network cable, power up and then DCPROMO it, put in into a workgroup, and change it's name, then add it to the domain and then DCPROMO? In order for DCPROMO to work, does it need to contact another DC?
2. Wipe the OS and start the build from scratch?
