Whilst you can re-use the old DC as a fileserver, you should be aware
if you provision another DC using a new DNS domain, it will be
precisely that, a new DC. This means that unless you have added
RFC2307 attributes your users and groups in the old domain, they will
not get the same IDs in the new one.
You will have to change the old DNS domain to the new one.
You will also have to remove every trace of the old DC
