Migration from SBS2011 to Server 2016 Essentials
Used this post to migrate with no problem. Everything was working. https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/sbs/2014/02/21/deploying-windows-server-2012-r2-essentials-in-an-existing-active-directory-environment/
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:
http://geekswithblogs.net/mhamilton/archive/2007/04/15/111674.aspx and https://petri.com/seizing_fsmo_roles
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 = 126.96.36.199.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.ip6.arpa
responsible mail addr = (root)
serial = 0
refresh = 28800 (8 hours)
retry = 7200 (2 hours)
expire = 604800 (7 days)
default TTL = 86400 (1 day)
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.
