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.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

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)
