FISMO ROLES - Domain controller move.
Posted on 2006-10-19
Mail server: Mailserver - Windows Server 2003 with Exchange Server 2003
DC at headquarters: DCMAIN - Windows Server 2003
dc at Data Centre: DCSEC - Windows Server 2003
Got a simple question for you.
I got two domain controllers one at a data centre and one at the hq.
I want to shutdown the hq side of operations and remove the domain controller from here along with the exchange environemnt in which it runs. Since the domain controller at the hq is the machine that holds all the fismo roles, can i just use ADUC to transfer them? Like click on operations master in AD and go through RID, PDC, Infrastrucure and just switch them over to the ones at the data centre and then simply demote the domain controller at the hq.
After that, just uninstall exchange from the server next to it?
