|Okay so I just created added a new Domain Controller, But I forgot to rename it from the WIN-xxx so I renamed the domain controller AFTER I ran dcpromo.exe and after I did that, the other domain controllers DO NOT SEE the renamed. I suspect that it doesn't even replicate.|
This frustrated me... Microsoft REALLY needs to fix this bug in their software.
So I did this.....
I FORCE deleted the WIN-xxx from both the Active Directory Users and Computer AND Active Directory Sites and Services, HOPING that it would replicated, but it didn't. I then ERASED the one I renamed (that means reformatted and reinstalled Windows Server on that computer) and I am starting that server over.
The problem is, what traces of this "failed" renamed domain controller is on my domain? How do I COMPLETELY erase the old WIN-xxx which I have already erased via Active Directory Users and Computers? It was by default, a Global Catalog, but There are no FSMO roles on it.
Does anyone know how to erase the WIN-xxx box which I permanently erased?
The servers are all Windows Server 2008 R2 boxes.
