    You have to set that in sites and services and in the properties of the NTDS or there abouts.

    Re: Best procedure and config of soon to be purchased DC.

    Just out of interest, if the main DC with all the FSMO roles was stolen, how would you resolve the problems left and how would this affect the remaining DC.

    I now know about changing DC's and changing roles to a new DC but can't help wondering what sort of mess would be left if the DC was stolen. (hope i never have to find out in reality)

    You can seize them rather than transfer them in the absence of the FSMO role holder.

    Yes you can sieze them but expect to have issues if you have to do it and it should only be a last resort such as your dc is stolen.

    I have a similar situation to you coming up in the summer. I need to rebuild/resize the partitions on my PDC emulator so I was planning of installing my new server which I will have by then as a DC using dcpromo and transferring all the roles to that before demoting my server I need to rebuild down to a member server and then out of the domain completely for the rebuild.

    Can I then rebuild this one using the same name and then dcpromo it back to a DC without any issues?

    I have done a similar thing recently. Failing server installation, transfered the roles of and rebuilt the server to a member server. I did have another DC as well though.

    I did however rename it differently. You can just hunt through the various DNS section like kerberos etc for a mention of it before you rebuild it but you should be ok if you demote it and take it off the domain.
