I am desperately lookin for help, my organisation bought a new server and I needed to move ad from the old box to the new one.
I read on the internet and did:
Make the new box replicating the old one
transfer all fsmo roles
then Remove dsn from the old one
then running dcpromo on the old box
that where things get really bad for me as I keep having an error message saying :
“The box indicating that this domain controller is the last domain controller for your domain is unchecked. However, no other domain controllers for that domain can be contacted.”
Remember I still have my replicating server running
I would really like to solve this issue, is there a way to promote replica servers to pdc?
If I just remove the old box from the network will the Replica take over?
