I have a second AD on Win2k8 St Ed that is currently running in my network, not touching that one at all. I want to replace AD1 with the new server, but after I promote the new AD, can and demote AD1, also remove it from my domain. Can I rename the NEW AD, as AD1 and use the same IP??? any input is appreciated, thanks. Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
