Ok, this is what I thought, yes. Thank you, Andrew. Just some final
All fsmo roles are currently on my DC1 (with the corrupt DomainDnsZones
database). I'm a bit hesitant to start moving around roles, as long as
everything still seems to work. But, as far as I see, there are three
options to proceed from here:
option 1 - move only the DomainNamingMasterRole from (corrupt) DC1 to
(probably healthy) DC2. Then install/add a new DC3, and then it will
replicate everything from DC1, except it will take the DomainDnsZones
from DC2, is that right?)
(but I don't know if DC=DomainDnsZones and the role
DomainNamingMasterRole are connected with each other like this)
option 2 - take a deep breath, move all roles to DC2, hope & check
everything still works afterwards, and then install/add DC3, so it will
replicate everything from DC2.
And I guess this is NOT possible:
option 3 - Install a new third DC3, and replicate that new DC3 with my
(probably healthy) DC2, WITHOUT doing scary things like transferring
fsmo roles first?
I hope option 1 could work..? Can anyone confirm/advise?
