Shutting down a DC that holds the FISMO roles

We are moving to a new datacenter. We have multiple sites across the country each with their own DC. Is it ok to have our DC holding the FISMO roles go down for approximately three hours and then come back up or do I have to transfer all the roles to anothe DC for the three hours.
Thanks,
David

That should be fine - have a look at impact of each role being unavailable: http://blogs.dirteam.com/blogs/jorge/archive/2011/07/11/the-impact-of-fsmo-roles-not-being-available.aspx

Brian puhl also has a good article on FSMO's going down   http://blogs.technet.com/b/bpuhl/archive/2005/12/07/415761.aspx

Are you confident that the move will only take three hours to a new data center?  

Thanks

Great articles, thank you.

Yes, three hours should be plenty of time. We are only moving an hour away. It would be the last server down and the first one back up. We are doing it off hours so it shouldn't impact any of the users.

Thanks for your quick responses.
