      I know the tool bat will it be to save the domain name?

      Lets say i have a domain named: "eliran.com" and i need to reinsall it whis the same name ("eliran.com") and save all the users and groups.

      The way i know, i need to do is install a temp domain: "test.com" migrate all the users and groups to him uninstall "eliran.com" then reinstall "eliran.com" and migrate all the users and computers form "test.com" to "eliran.com"

      Maybe some one have faster way?

        Who or what ever told you this was going to be a fast and easy endeavor? This isn't something you're going knock out on a Friday afternoon after lunch. You're talking about replacing your entire AD infrastructure and everything that it touches.

        Get serious and stop asking for shortcuts. You could be looking at months of planning and testing to do this right.

          One-step migration between domains with the same name can not be done. Instead of trying to rebuild from scratch, I'd try to clean up the current environment, rebuild the DCs, remedy the issues, etc...
