Cannot login - Domain not available
I'll give the context before describing the problem.
Our business has 5 locations. We shut down one of the locations and moved all the servers to our primary loc. In doing so, we shut down DC's. This location was part of a different domain (we'll call this old.com). The primary loc. will be referred to as new.com.
The last of old.com's domain controllers were part of the location that was shut down. We have one server that has uncommon software (call this old-DB), (thus very expensive to hire consultants to work on) which has a web server that references it (call this server old-web) (for front end use)that we have to keep for archiving purpose (in case of audits). It will only function with the old.com domain. So, I fired up the last old.com domain controller. Fired up the old-DB server, and was able to login. I fired up the old-web server, and it says domain is not available. I checked the DNS settings, and I have everything set to our current network, with the primary DNS being the old.com DC.
So I checked AD Sites and Services on old.com DC, it showed 3 old (no longer existing) DC's. So, I removed them from the list. I ran 'set logonserver' on old-web and it shows old-DC as the server, but I cannot RDP to old-web nor can I login to it when the network cable is plugged in (if I unplug the cable, it uses cached credentials).
I ran netdiag on old-dc and got the below results, not sure if it helps:
