  • W2K3 AD Install on old OS.....

    Hello,

    I have the following scenario. W2K3 DC from domain A has been demoted and now is a member server (will soon be removed from the domain altogether).

    This server/hardware is moving to another domain and will become a domain controller on domain B.

    I know it is good practice to promote a DC from a fresh OS install, however time is against me on this one.

    My question is, if I use this server and promote it as a DC on domain B without re-installing the OS, what issues would I run into knowing it was a DC/member server in another domain once? (Albeit removed correctly).

    Thanks.

    There should be no issues as long as it has successfully joined to the new domain.
