Looks like one of my 3 W2K DCs has had a hard drive failure. I'm going
to have to rebuild it. The DC is only a GC and has DNS. No other
functions or FSMO.

I'm assuming I can just

1) replace the hard drive
2) rebuild the server with the same name & IP address
3) Let it replicate.

Any other steps to assure success?

TIA.
