    I have an older Windows 2003 server that is the AD server for our domain. The RAID array crashed yesterday and it does not look like recovery is likely. I have another W2003 server that was a member server that has the main LOB (line of business) application running on it.

    Is there a way to promote that server so that it would be the AD server (also DNS, DHCP, etc.) without access to the old AD? There aren’t many users so rebuilding the domain shouldn’t be a big deal.

    I’ve been stuggling with the older server for almost 22 straight hours and I’m going to bed for a couple hours. Please post or email any suggestions you have that might help our situation.

    Thanks for your replies!
