SBS 2003 to 2008R2 Migration Went wrong

I've been dealing with this issue for quite some time now. During the migration process my old domain controller started having hardware problems. Now I cannot even start it up. However, I've transferred all DC roles to the new server. For some reason I feel like I am missing a step. Please help!!!

I've attached my dcdiag log file from the new server
dcdiag.txt

I can see the new server trying to replicate with the old.  make sure you remove it orm Active Directory Sites and services.  Also, did you get all the email and files off you needed?  Sharepoint as well?

I don't have email on the old server. We strictly use it for active directory and domain services. So you're saying if I remove it from the domain. The new server (server2008) will start authenticating users?

As long as the new server is a global cats log and it has all of the FSMO roles you are straight

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

It should also be a DNS server and set to be the primary DNS server on the workstation s.  What are you using for dhcp?

The server 2008 is running DHCP DNS AD

Everything seemed like it copied over fine except the 2008 server was not sharing sysvol. Is there a way to force the 2008 dc to authenticate users? It already has all the dc services switched over.

shre out the SYSvol fodler, use the saem permissions as the other server  Then open a command prompt.  use the command

repadmin /syncall /PAed

Sysvol and netlogon are not shared and the old server won't boot currently would that command still work?

Can you restore your old server and revert back to it, then start over?

Because it sounds like you didn't properly assess the health of it before starting your migration.

Also, please advise if you were following the official documentation to do the migration, and if you installed the new server in Migration Mode?

We ended having to create a new dc with a new domain, the old server had a raid issue and couldn't recover from it

We couldn't follow the recommendation of any of the experts, since the original server was longer accessible.
