Windows 2003 Transfer of FMSO Roles and GC - Advice needed
Posted on 2007-03-29
We have a small network, with one Windows 2003 R2 based Active Directory DC. The controller generally works fine, but due to some other issues with the Server (that I won't bother you with here) I want to transfer all the FMSO roles and switch global catalogue to another Server, then demote this Server and format it for other uses. I've joined the New Server to the Domain as a DC, and have all the MS white papers on how to transfer the roles and switch on Global Catalogue on this new Server.
However, have I missed anything? Is there anything more than the 5 x FMSO roles (Schema Master, Domain Naming Master, Infrastructure Master, RID Master and PDC Emulator) & GC that need consideration?
I await any useful advice someone might be able to offer :)
