Scheduled Power Outage - AD Preperation
Posted on 2006-11-21
The power in our office will be cut for at least 24 hours this coming Friday evening. I'm looking at the steps needed for AD in regard to my forest root domain as I've never been in this situation before.
I have a forest root domain with 3 child domains beneath it, LUX, BRU & MIL. BRU is where the power outage will occur and where the forest root servers are located. All sites are connected via VPN.
I think I need to transfer the FSMO roles using the ntdsutil utility to a 'live' domain controller, but I would like to be 110% sure before going ahead and making mistakes.
If anyone could steer me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.
