FSMO Role transfer
Posted on 2006-04-27
So what is going to go wrong really
I have a 2000 server that I want to decommision and a new 2003 server. the domain is all configured ok, new server doing dns wins dhcp, all ok, replication is good, just need to transfer the roles and dcpromo the old box out.
I have worked out how to do this but am skeptical about MS software getting it right as I have never done this before and just wonderred if any experienced MS engineers could advise on possible pitfalls or known failures.
Or am I just being to cautious and in general this role transgerring is trouble free.
Your thoughts appreciated.
