I had a dying dc (which also held all roles).
Was able to transfer roles before it died.
Could not run dcpromo before it died.
Cleared up metadata using Active Directory Users and Computers as per this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc816907%28v=ws.10%29.aspx#bkmk_graphical
I want to promote another server using a different name, but same ip address.
To do that, I wanted to make sure that DNS was clean and found some instances of the original server in DNS.
Additionally, found that the original server is referenced as the only server in Default First Sites under Forward Lookup Zones, DomainDNSZones, and ForestDNSZones.
The domain has been divided into two sites as well, which we will call SITE-1 and SITE-2
Services look correct in them (except for the extra orphaned server entry in SITE-1)
All existing dc pass all tests in dcdiag.
Do I need to do anything to the Default First Sites entries?
Am I safe to delete the extra entries for the orphaned server under SITE-1?
Thoughts? Things I should look out for?
