Windows 2012 new install promotion to DC
Posted on 2015-02-23
I have a windows 2012 server- new server. the 2008 server was our DC and we are wanting it to just be a member server after this process is done. The 2008 server was the DC. I have promoted the 2012 server to DC.
I wanted to change the ip address of the servers to clean things up. but when I change the Ip address on the old server the AD service roles on the 2012 server all go Red? If I change it back to the original IP the roles go back to Green? I have not demoted the 2008 server yet. scared to do that if the IP change on the old server is causing AD roles to go Red on the new server.
I did run NTDSUTIL and verified FSMO roles are on new server.
