I have a domain among a handful of schools that run the student labs. The Domain Controller that was first used in building this domain, and that houses the FSMO roles, has gone down as a result of a bad RAID card. A new RAID card was installed about 36 hour later and the DC was fired back up. However, their are now issues with this domain. No DNS communication, Group Policy issues, etc. since this DC that is the holder of the FSMO roles went down.
What is the approach I must take now.
I am thinking about seizing the FSMO roles and transfering them to another DC within the domain. Then, I would have to clean up the metadata for the DC that originally housed the FSMO roles and then re-add that DC back to the domain again using a different server name.
Would this be the correct approach or am I missing something here?
Thanks for your assistance.
