My 2003 server crashed, and this was the only domain controller I had.

I have built a new 2003 server and named it the same as the old and made it a domain controller.

The domain name is the same.

Do I need to do anything to the workstations so they use the new domain (which is named the same as the old)?

I really want all the workstations stay the same (i.e. keep their old desktop, my documents, etc).

What is the best way to do this?
