    Hi all,

    I want to create a new domain controller. The problem is that the
    name of the domain is that of an existing domain. The earlier domain
    controller was accidently formatted. Will this be posiible? If yes, will it
    affect the working of the systems in that domain?

    Thanks & Regards,
    Harshad

  3. just rebuilding the domain will not solve the problem. Although the same
    name it is a different domain as the domain SID is different. Servers and
    clients would need to be rejoined, data would need to be repermissioned. For
    exchange you could do a disaster recovery into another forest while your new
    forest is the "another forest". Google for it and you will find it
