  • Reinstall Server

    Hi,

    This is probably a stupid question....

    I have a 2003 Domain with a DC in multiple sites, A,B,C and D.

    In site A i have multiple DC's which i inherited from my predecessor one of which is a total mess, it's working, but i would like to reinstall as a fresh DC.

    What is the best way to do this?

    Do i need to demote, and then format and reinstall and promote back to a DC?

    Doesn't need to have the same name, as it wont be used for anything other that a backup DC and maybe as a Tape Backup Server.

    Many thanks in advance

    Tommy.

    I think you have it
    Demote, and if it doesnt do that, kill all references using metadata cleanup
    IMHO format and reinstall, preferably under a new name so NO legacy stuff
