MDI Sensor Implications of renaming a DC and or migrating to a new server

Brass Contributor

Howdy Folks, 


One of our clients have a 2 DC (Windows Server 2012 R2) environment. They will soon be migrated to new servers (Windows Server 2019) potentially with Different host names. 


Has anyone dealt with this before? What implications it may have (except obviously the sensor will have to be installed on those DCs)

i.e. - such as Event log configurations, Permissions and GPO configurations etc.. - would we need to reconfigure in the new servers or will they be migrated?

you just need to install the Sensors in the new Active Directory Servers. nothing will change since everything configured on level of the domain will be replicated to the new DCs.
