Hi Guys ,
My DC2 has gone done (hardware fault)  - details below:
DC1 - Roles:  AD / DNS / All FSMO roles - Global Catalog enabled
DC2 - Roles: AD / DNS (copy of DC1) / DHCP -  Global Catalog enabled

can i add the new role DHCP on my DC1 and just authorize it?  Then would i just take the DC2 off the network and clean up AD via Metadata?  or is it best to by another server hardware and bring the server back up via backup?
