Rejoining a different domain. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Let me explain my situation and see what people can recommend about dealing with it.

    In the office i work at, we have a domain controller machine running Windows server 2008 r2 under tv.com domain

    They want to migrate to windows server 2012 r2 with is already set up and has tv.local domain on it with the same user structure which was migrated by hand from windows 2008 server.

    So the question would be: Is it safe to leave domain tv.com by joining a workgroup, and than joining a new domain tv.local.

    What would be the downsides? Is there any information or file loss we should expect on computers after joining a new domain which has exactly the same users.

    Please help me with this hypothetical, for now, situation.

    Thank you.
