Removing Domain and rebuilding
What would happen if i removed the entire domain and demoted the last DC and removed the domain and forest and then immediately rebuilt the domain again on a new server which would then be the new PDC as it were, holding the FSMO roles and then joining the old PDC that used to hold the FSMO roles before the domain got taken down.
I know you cannot take down a DC and then bring it up later since the tombstone life or whatever it is kicks in and then you get problem with the replication and stuff. Would the same be the case with a domain rebuild. I have done it before but only using the same PDC which i should imagine wouldn't raise this issue or am i looking into it in too much complexity?
This is the problem when working on multiple OSes, i'm beginning to get a little confused over which does which. :)
