I have about 10 servers. Everything from win 2003 to 2012. Soon I must replace two of them.
The problem is that one of them is a Windows 2003 AD server with all the FSMO roles.
And it works as the main file server.
Now they want me to replace it with a Windows 2012 AD server (already installed)
And the new server must have the same name and IP as the old 2003 server.
And to make it more interesting, the old server must remain as a demoted member server (with a new name and IP) because it holds a program that I can´t move.
Is it possible to rename a Windows 2012 AD server to a name already used?
And how do I do this the best way?
