  • You can seize roles to the other domain controller.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/255504/using-ntdsutil-exe-to-transfer-or-seize-fsmo-roles-to-a-domain-control

    then perform cleanup

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/identity/ad-ds/deploy/ad-ds-metadata-cleanup

    then rebuild the failed one once hardware issues are sorted.

     As to operating system support for DL380 G9 I'd contact the vendor HP

    Another option is to install Hyper-V role on host, then stand up a 2003 guest VM

  • Hello,

    Thank you for posting in our forum.

    According to your description, we want to create a Hyper-V on the 2012 server and then put the image of the win server 2003 on DL 380 G6 into it.

    Based on my experience, this operation is feasible,we can configure it like this.

    If there is anything else we can do for you, please feel free to post in the forum.

    Have a nice day!

    Best regards,
    Cynthia

  • The much simpler / safer method to build a new virtual machine is to use installation media or ISO. There are various P2V methods out there but this would be an absolute last resort.

  • Windows 2012(R2) supports Windows 2003R2 as a guest.

    You can virtualize your DC with V2V (or P2V) converter and run on new server.

    Here is a comparison and feature matrix of converters: https://www.vmwareblog.org/v2v-converters-overview/

    I'd use dcdiag / repadmin tools to verify health correcting all errors found before starting. Then stand up the new 2003 guest, patch it fully, license it, join existing domain, add active directory domain services, promote it also making it a GC (recommended), transfer FSMO roles over (optional), transfer pdc emulator role (optional), use dcdiag / repadmin tools to again verify health.

  • Hello,

    I am very sorry to reply you so late.

    According to your last reply, Isass.exe error occurs during normal startup and pressing F8 will enter safe mode. Can you describe the problem you have encountered or share a screenshot of the error in more detail?

    Appreciate your patience.

    Best regards,
