How can I recover a failed domain controller?

By josh.franzen ·
I have been contracted independently by a company to rebuild a domain controller that failed as a result of a blown motherboard. The drives are also dead. I figure since they fell out of RAID that they will be inaccessible anyway. I have rebuilt the DC as close to the original as i think I could have. All of the users are still logged in with their former domain credentials. Is there a way to "push" these credentials back to the new domain controller? The domain controller was the only one in the forest and the CarbonitePro backups did not include any of the AD files.

I have heard that it may be possible to use the Admin Pack locally on each machine to export the user account. Thanks to anyone who tries to help.
