AD restore of operations masters(FSMO) role
Posted on 2013-11-02
I am trying to figure out if in case of failure of one of our Domain Controller which holds all FSMO roles is it possible to restore it.
As per the MS article,
Restoring the RID Master can result in Active Directory data corruption, so it is not recommended.
Restoring the Schema Master can result in orphaned objects, so it is not recommended.
So in case we need to restore RID and Schema Master, what is the best practice? Is it possible to restore this server?
Windows servers are 2003R2. domain functional level is also 2003R2.
