dcdiag DFSR and other errors after migrating windows server 2008 R2 to windows server 2012 Active directory

Hi all,

After migrated Windows Server 2008 R2 to Windows server 2012 R2 AD, I demoted the Windows server 2008 R2 and change the server name and ip address to something else. From the new Windows Server 2012 R2 AD, I changed the new Windows Server 2012 R2 AD back to the old Windows server 2008 R2 server name and ip address.  But when I ran dcdiag /v /q to check any error.. I got the DFSREvent and other errors from below.  Can someone look at the DFSR and other errors and possible to fix it?

Regarding the DFSREvent... I found another post below of how to correct FRS\DFSR object. However, I was not able to do it and not sure if it is related to my error...

Also you need to follow steps in below article on 2012 DC post successful rename operation to correct FRS \ DFSR object references

Renaming DCs never ends well. You'll have to spend a lot of time in DNS, ADUC, ADSS, and NTDSUtilncleaning up orophaned entries.

Thanks but if you can give me more insight what would be the issue by renaming DC.  I just wanted to clarify that I renamed the server name not the Domain name from SERVER1.domain.com to SERVER2.domain.com of the DC by running "Netdom computername" command and it seems all complete successfully.

I ran the dcdiag command today all other errors are gone but except the DFSREvent is still here...

There are warning or error events within the last 24 hours after the
          SYSVOL has been shared.  Failing SYSVOL replication problems may cause
          Group Policy problems.

Thanks.

Is there any command or utility I can double check the old server name is removed completely and not causing any issue?  I manually checked DNS, ADUC and ADSS, all seems updated to the new server name successfully.

Not really. Hence the reason renames never go well.
