I'm after a bit of advice please.
I need to rebuild two DC's from 2012 R2 to 2016. I would like to use the same name and IP. (I have used the same IP addresses for DC upgrades before but never the same name). This has always seemed to work well. I know some people are not into using same name and IP's for DC's but if it's gracefully demoted and then repromoted, it should be OK, no?
Can anybody see an issue if I:
Demote DC01, remove it from the domain, shut it down
Wait for replication (Maybe an hour or two)
Build new 2016 server with same name and IP as previous
Promote as DC
Wait for replication
Do the above for DC02.
Any advice would be brilliant.
