    Rebuilding Active Directory / DNS on SIMS server, help needed.

    I've inherited a school that has had a lot of DNS issues due to an old server not bring demoted correctly and the roles not being transferred.

    We want to remove Active Directory & DNS etc and rebuild it so its all correct but the concern is that the server runs SIMS.

    What would be the effect on SIMS / FMS if we removed all roles from the server and dcpromod it, then rebuilt it?

    Would SIMS remain intact as its just a database?

    Thanks for your help.

    Matt

    SIMS will be okay, i've moved it between domains before. Personally though I would build a new server/vm and migrate SIMS across to it.

    You can get the other server setup with a copy of the database, login to it and test it works and then do a final transfer of the database and switch the connect.ini and drive mappings to point to the new server, (don't forget to move the docstorage)

    Thanks Conrad.

    I bit the bullet today and dcpromo'd the server and re promo'd and made a new domain, testing sims throughout and all is working perfectly.

    Thanks for your help!
