Transferring FSMO and DNS & DHCP from one server to another
Posted on 2011-09-07
Just a quick question re the procedure of transferring FSMO/DNS/DHCP from one DC to another. I think I know the "how to" but would like to confirm.
Three DCs in office (all in same domain), DNS is AD integrated. Does that mean I don't need to worry about DNS? I know how to transfer FSMO.
My main concern is DHCP - we have a lot of static IPs and reservations on our DHCP server. I think I will follow the steps outline in Microsoft KB325473 - is there anything else I need to consider?
I don't think we use WINS at all so I believe I can ignore that? I heard that it is better to use WINS in Exchange environment, is that true?
All DCs are Global Catalogue.
Thx in advance
