Hi EE,

I've migrated W2K Domain controller to W2K8 Domain contoller.

Then, transferred the following FSMO roles:

Domain Operations Master
RID
PDC
Infrastructure Master

As far as I know there are 5 FSMO roles, but I can only transfer 4 FSMO roles. Where is the Schema Master role?

The W2K domain controller which holds all the FSMO roles.   Is this means that my domain controller is also the Schema Master because this role has not been transferred since day one?

Thanks heaps.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I think the real issue is whether or not your 2K8 server can functionally replace the 2000 server.  (assuming you have transferred the schema role to the 2K8 server)
dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:dcname  > c:\DIAG.txt
What does dcdiag report?
(don't shutdown/demote the 2000 server until you absolutley have to)
