Reinstalled Server 2003 on PDC - How do I reconnect desktops?
Posted on 2014-07-20
What am I missing? So, my PDC crashed. I reinstalled Server 2003, set it up as the PDC with all the same settings, IP, AD accounts, etc... But now my desktops can't find the domain name. The server is visible on the network, they just can't into it. Unless, I log into their machines local account, remove them from the domain to a workgroup, then rejoin them to the domain. However, doing that causes Win7 to create a new user profile on the machine, and I have to go through all kinds of loops to get them into their original user profile.
I assume it's something easy, and because I've never done it before, I'm at a loss... Thanks in advance.
