What needs to be done after a Domain Controller crash?
We have (had) two domain controllers, one of which recently failed. For a number of reasons, restoration is not on the list of things they are able to try. The box is old and replacement hardware is hard to come by. I did some research and found posts talking about performing a metadata cleanup. This seems straightforward enough but I have also read other places about seizing operations master roles. Even further I have read suggestions that you simply right click and delete the missing DC from AD users and computers.
The last idea does not seem like the right way to go.
I would think that I need to seize the OM roles from the missing server and then do a metadata cleanup. Is that correct?
