I have a Windows Server 2012 as a Domain Controller (Only one DC in the domain). Had trouble loging in to server as domain admin because the dns and DC services was stoped.  I could log in  with local admin but only in safe mode with lack of functions. Then the server was manually opt out from DC by changing to Workgroup, and tried to change msconfig so that the server would boot in Normal mode. Doesn't remeber what was done first or last of those things, got little stressed, but anyhow. Now the server wont boot at all. That is not what I'm askin help for, but I wonder; When the server is up and running again: Is there anyway to opt in the DC again? Or is the DC "dead" since the DC computer has opt out from itself?
If there is no hope i will not use time for fixing the boot, but start recovering from backup.
