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.

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)

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!
