are both dc's in the same domain ? If that is the case - then no.

You shouldn't have any trouble moving that role. The Infrastructure Master doesn't do much more than translate SIDs from other Domains and keep track of group membership, so it shouldn't affect Exchange to change the server it's on.

You can move FMSO role to any DC without affecting the application.  Make sure all FMSO roles are available.  You can verify the FSMO role holders using the following command:

Netdom Query FSMO

Would it also make any difference if the dc I moved it to holds other fsmo's?

as long as you move the roles from one DC to another DC within the same domain - it doesnt matter to Exchange.

As a note, you should make sure that the server you move the Infrastructure Master Role to isn't a Global Catalog (unless all your DCs are Global Catalogs). There are some known issues with that configuration.

Yeh that's why I needed to move it in the first place. What sort of problems would I see?
