We have a backup dc,allso we had an old computer that had the same name.
Someone turned it on and tried to rename it, so in the procces the backup dc
in the DC list was allso renamed.
We erased the renamed with the option 'this domain is permenantly
offline.....'
How can we return the original backup dc back to the DC list in the active
directory?
Do we first have to demote it and then promote it again  or is there an
easier way ?
Allso is there a problem as it was renamed and then deleted?
