2003 Server FSMO Transfer
Posted on 2011-05-06
I am sure this will be a simple one for most.
I have two servers, one windows server 2003 as domain controller and second with windows server R2 setup as AD replication and secondary DNS.
I am retiring the main domain controller and will replace it will domain controller 2. I followed the process to transfer the FSMO roles, all 5 of them to the 2nd domain controller. It was successful.
I then turned off the 1st domain controller and removed it from the site.
Now I am getting errors that the global catalog server cannot be contacted. Also, the FMSO was successful, but not yet validated.
I am not sure what I need to do next. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
