Hi,

Can some one please explain to me what happens if each of the operation master was to go down, e.g if the shema master goes, what happens to the infrastructure?

thank you in advance,

It depends on which FMSO role you are talking about, and you particular environment. For example, you could have the schema master offline for years and not know it, until you try to install a new version of Exchange or add a newer domain controller than what you currently have.

The PDC Emulator role is most likely to be noticed, and then the RID Master after a while.
