    I searched the forum without much success on my problem.

    I have a parent domain with 3 DC’s in the parent domain. I have 4 remote child domains, each has 1 DC.
    All are running Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition.

    We had a fire and the office and server were completely destroyed. Offsite data only backup with 2 day old data is all I have.
    Even if I had a second DC, the fire would have melted it too.

    I have a new server that will be running Windows 2016 Server Standard Edition.

    Can I create this new server in the previously existing child domain and replicate from FSMO, etc. on the parent domain user accounts and passwords?

    If so, how do I go about doing this?

    Thank you in advance.
