How to Move FSMO roles from 2003 STD to 2012 STD

I added a Windows Server 2012 Std to a Windows Server 2003 domain.  These are the only 2 servers on the Domain.  Now I want to move the FSMO roles to the 2012 server, but keep the 2003 server on as a 2nd Domain Controller.

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

When in "Active Directory Domain and Trust", clicked on "Change Active Directory Controller" and want to select "The Domain Controller or AD LDS Instance", but I noticed that the 2012 server has a status of UNAVAILABLE.  Should I be concerned?  I didn't move ahead with the changing the AD Contoller yet, in case this is a concern.  Thank You.

Did you do that from the 2003 box or the 2012 box?    Check the event logs and verify health of the 2012 DC with dcdiag and run repadmins /showepl or /showreps

Thanks
