I have a domain that is at 2008 R2 Functional Level with 2 Domain Controllers. This Domain is part of a trust relationship with another domain. The DC's also perform the function of DNS and DHCP. I have a secondary DC that does not house the FSMO roles acting a lot flaky. I am thinking about removing this machine as a DC and removing it from the Domain Then re-adding it and re-adding the role of DC. What process do I need to follow? What kinds of issues can I expect? Would it be better to recreate the machine (It is a VM on ESXI 5.5) name it exactly as the other and re-create the roles exactly as the other?
By flaky, it was restored and has not worked right since. I had a host failure and now the windows time service will not restart. I just want to essentially start from scratch, but would like a road map of sorts.
Or would it be better do take this opportunity to add my first 2012 DC? What issues might I have there?
Thanks in advance.
