Up until Thursday night had two servers running in domain - one SBS 2003 (with FSMO roles) and one Server 2008 (Exchange 2011 running on this machine).
Sometime Thursday night SBS 2003 went belly up and is beyond repair.
Tried seizing FSMO roles on Server 2008 - what I have left there is AD, DNS, DFS and group Policy issues all over the place - I've got to think at this point doing a clean install of Server & Exchange has got to be easier than trying to fix this mess!
Assuming a clean install (I still want / need to use the same domain name) what do I need to do for workstations in the domain? They aren't really connecting to the domain now so I'm not sure they can be removed from the domain.
The Exchange mailboxes (Exchange Mgmt Console on the server cannot connect to the Exchange instance) - anyway of saving them and importing them back into the fresh install?
If you don't have a back, I'd run Windows Server Backup or use another app. I use Backup Exec and have a separate backup job for Exchange that runs nightly.
