  • Replace master DC - domain.local

    Dear All,

    I'm replacing my old server 2003 std with new server that runs 2003 std.

    I moved all the roles and disconnect the old dc from the network without DEMOTE it yet.

    when i ping to domain.local it shows the old dc ip.

    How can I change it to the new DC IP?

    Thanks alot,

    Roey.

    Reconnect it and run DCPROMO to remove it as a DC -- if you don't, AD will try looking for it still
    Have you moved all the FSMOs as well as uninstalling roles like DNS, DHCP and WINS?

    Thread reported for move to Server OS forum -- nothing to do with Exchange

        If both are in the same site, you will get a random response when you ping the domain name

        But whatever you do, do NOT leave the original DC disconnected for too long or it will cause you BIG problems

          Thanks,


          I thought to delete manually the old dc from site and services.
          Do you think it's good idea for this issue?

          and should I uninstall first DNS and then AD?

          thanks,


          roey.

            IMHO never delete a DC manually unless all else has failed. Too much [email protected] left behind!

            Bring it back up and let it replicate fully
            1) Remove DNS, DHCP, WINS and any other roles except AD (making sure the new DC has them and DHCP scopes are changed to reflect this)
            2) If there are only 2 DCs in one site, run DCPROMO to demote it -- FSMOs will transfer seamlessly
            2a) If more than one additional DC, move FSMOs manually following instructions on main site
            3) once AD is removed, disjoin it from domain and flatten it (or keep it as a member server)
