fsmo roles questions
Posted on 2009-07-01
Just want a confirmation ...
I have an existing DC/GC (Win Srv 2003) and an addtional DC/GC (Win Srv 2008) in the same domain in that forest. I just want to confirm that there is no need to transfer any FSMO roles (including Domain Naming Master role, schema master, Specific RID Master, PDC Emulator, and Infrastructure Master FSMO Roles) to my additional Domain Controller (Win Srv 2008) ?? From my understanding, I think the answer is NO.
In case if my primary DC goes down, then my additional DC will act as a backup, in that case do I loose anything if I hadn't transferred the FSMO roles ?
