The client has 2 x servers, PDC (all 5 roles) and BDC
As the PDC will be replaced with a new server shortly, I dediced to transfer the FSMO roles to the "BDC" server, making it the PDC.
I transferred the following roles successfully, RID, PDC & Domain Naming Master
(I received a message after each role was transferred, that the operation was completed successfully)
The problem is, if I check the server roles (after the transfer), it shows "ERROR" at all three these roles - as being transferred.
Because of the "ERROR" status, It is not allowing me to undo the transfer either
(transferring the roles back is not possible)
1. Could this be a DNS issue? Is there a quick way to make sure that the DNS is correct?
2. Why would I have received the message that the processes were completed successfully, if something went wrong in the back-ground?
2. The last resort would be to Seize the roles, and I would much rather try a few alternatives, before going that route ...
Any help will be appreciated.
