  • Lost Primary DC hardware

    Greetings,

    I lost a server, hardware is blitzed.
    This 2003 server was my Primary DC running AD. It also hosted my VM Server which was also a DC running AD.
    I have recovered the VMWare server files and transfered to another VM Host. It is running with a few issues I am attempting to solve.

    I have added the DNS role but not working as yet.

    My primary goal is to promote this 2003 server to the primary DC. How do I do this w/o the original DC present?

    Do you have another DC?
    If so, carpe fsmo and then remove all traces of the old one, then promote a new box
    If not, how are your backups?
