I have a windows 2000 domain - 2 windows 2000 DC - various member servers (all 2000) 1 which is running Exchange 2000. One of the DC is a new server that I just promoted and will now upgrade to 2003. According to the KB I
will run Scenario 2. I just Transfered the FSMO roles from DC1 to DC2. When I run the script from the command line to add to the exchange schema I get an error that states DC1 is no longer the schema master. I am sure this is just a timing issue as I just transfered the Schema master role from DC1 to DC2 - Shouldn't this only be 15 minutes. Also when I switched roles and set the GC from DC1 to DC2 exchange said it couldn't find the GC at first - again timing issue?
When I check where the FSMO roles are (via vb script) the owner shows as DC1 - How long will it take for the transfer of roles to take? or do I have other issues?
