Remove and join a domain in Hyper-v Server 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have one Hyper-V Server 2008 (Core like) that was part of a domain, but the Domain Controller died and so I've created a new DC (with the same name, same domain, same ip, same everything).

    Problem is that I can't get the Hyper-V Server to join the new domain because it tries to connect to the one that died first.

    To leave the old domain, I tried netdom remove in cmd and I get this error message: The specified domain either does not exists or could not be contacted.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

  • "netdom remove /?"  should give oyu examples of the switches.

    If the domain can no longer be contacted you must use the /force switch

    "netdom remove /force"

  • Thank you, that helped me also.  In my case the machine account was inadvertently deleted.

    for the record the full syntax is netdom remove <servername> /force
