    Migration from SBS2011 to Server 2016 Essentials
    Used this post to migrate with no problem. Everything was working.
    The night I finished the master AD had a hardware failure and was not able to remove the master AD from Domain. I’m trying to recover the domain to the 2016 Essentials backup AD. I used this post to recover the domain: and
    Had no problem with the steps in the post. Moved to Clean up AD and used this post:
    Next, I cleaned DNS. Deleted old DC from Name Server and replaced the old server name with a new name. Start of Authority (SOA). Check NSLOOKUP and receive this:
    primary name server =
    responsible mail addr = (root)
    serial = 0
    refresh = 28800 (8 hours)
    retry = 7200 (2 hours)
    expire = 604800 (7 days)
    default TTL = 86400 (1 day)
    Server: UnKnown
    Address: ::1
    Name: accounting-03.kkmobbs.local
    I have the same problem I started with: when I go to Active Directory Sites and Service I receive this:
    Naming information cannot be located because The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.
    I’m not sure where to go from hear. This is a small domain I can start new but all the user, GPO’s and Devices where already synced so I thought it would be easier to fix this server.
