Last time I did this was ALONG time ago on a 2003 Server. However, the current situation is... the client had an existing Windows Server 2012 Standard, Server. It's only six months old and it crashed, with no onsite backup. Here is where I entered the scene. I ended up having to do a clean install on the same physical Sever with the same Server 2012 standard version software. So my question is when I return the Server to her office on Monday, how do I join the existing workstations to this newer installed Server? I can name the domain the same as the old or different. And, it will have the same ip address. What is the easiest way to do this? VERY IMPORTANT THING is that I don't have to redo the user accounts with there local preferences and I don't have to move any data stored locally. I hope that makes sense. In other words, I want the users preferences and files to look and be exactly the same as it is now, after I join the domain. Currently, (since the Server crashed) they are logged onto domainname.local. I don't think they even knew they weren't actually connected to the Server other than by the fact that they couldn't access a lot of data files. Everything else looked the same and I need to keep it that way or I'm going to have a very long week. Hopefully that helped explain a little more.
