    Nah, I wouldn't even attempt it.
    Chicken ;b

    I'll conditionally surrender that point. The last few I've been near had things other then AD they needed (or worse, bits of AD they needed), but if it is mostly a "pure" DC then yes building it as new DC is less risky.

    I'd check what was going on with replication on the working DCs first though. If they were happily replicating from the broken DC then fine, otherwise you will lose any significant changes made to AD on the broken DC when replication wasn't working.

    And obviously there's some cleaning up to do afterwards (more if DC had the FSMOs).

    Just to let you all know I have found the cause of the problem according to Dell the Poweredge 2850 MUST use the dell raid controller drivers NOT the Microsoft ones and also the scsii drives must be using the latest firmware. apparently the parity can be effected over wise, as in my situation
