    I’ve read the article above, and it mentions that you must wait for a full replication cycle before running the second netdom command.

    We have a rather long replication time, and it’s almost prohibitive to wait for the full cycle to complete.

    Can I run the first netdom command (example: NETDOM computername KUKU-SERVER.PETRI.LOCAL /add:DC-SERVER.PETRI.LOCAL) before I remove the old server from the domain and allow that replication cycle to complete in the background?

    I’m trying to cut down on the total wait time for this process. Thanks!
