Seizing FSMO roles in Windows 2008R2
Posted on 2010-08-21
So, I had a disk failure, which occurred on the server that was hosting my RID Master. As a result, that server is no longer up to date, even with recovery so, I can't run DCPROMO because it says the server itself is offline. So, I have to use NTDSUTIL to seize the FSMO roles over to my secondary server.
When I try to do this via command, I get an invalid syntax error:
fsmo maintenance: connections
server connections: connect to servername [SERVER]
Error parsing Input - Invalid Syntax.
Now, I'm following the cookbooks provided the resource online and I don't think I've missed anything but, then again, it is a Microsoft tool, and I am no expert.
Any suggestions (besides turning off my computer) would be appreciated :)
