    You can also try to install a replica DC, that will allow it to replicate, install DNS, adjust the DNS settings to it and then demote the old one and rebuild it, promote it, etc. With this way you can still have your passwords, groups, security settings, GPOs, joined machines, user's desktop profiles, user's settings, home folder settings, Exchange and everything else in the domain, that a csvde or ldifde export cannot handle.

    There is another fix that you can try by installing an extra DC in the domain and make it Global catalog and DNS server. You can have atleast 2 DC's per domain for failover and redundancy reason. Also check the below link for more information.
