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. Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
