Basically a VM that is a DC (dc002) seems to have a corrupt VMDK file. The VM is up and functioning fine. You cant vmotion/svmotion it, cold clone it, clone the vmdk file or anything. They all fail with errors for the vmdk and vmware support are being pretty slow with helping
So the plan I have is to:
1. Demote the DC (dc002) using DCPROMO and then remove it from domain and power off
2. Create a new DC (dc004) with a new name and give it the same IP as the old demoted DC (dc002) and the do DCPROMO to promote it.
I have already created dc003 and its fully functioning and dc001 is a physical DC and is the PDC. It is a 2008 Domain
Am I missing anything?
