I had 3 Dc in my domain. 2 win server 2003 (Say Fs1 and Fs2) and 1 server 2008 R2 (Fs3)Standard Edition. company decided to remove one ADC(FS2) running 2003 and rename FS3 As FS2. I decommissioned FS2 and its showing as Member server which is good. Problem started when I renamed FS3 (SErver 2008 R2) as FS2 using system properties. apparently it’s showing FS2 in System properites but in AD Users and computers it’s still showing it as FS3 and same thing is in AD sites and services I’m getting heaps of errors in AD replication and in DNS (40961,1055,4013,408,404,4015,1224, 1863,14548 etc How can I properly rename it or fix these errors ? Should I rename it what it was and then demote , change name and then promote as ADC ? Help plz Thanks in Advance appa Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
