Hello IT pros.

I'm looking for information to transfer all FSMO roles from one Windows 2012 R2 to another Windows 2012 R2.

I'd like to know if the process is the same as from 2008 to 2012 or has something changed?


Thanks in advance.

Regards

There are now powershell cmdlets to manage the FSMO roles and this is the method I'd recommend. Otherwise you spend a lot more time hunting through the various GUI tools that haven't been merged into 2012s new server manager native GUI yet.

If I use this in PowerShell:

Move-ADDirectoryServerOperationMasterRole -Identity "TargetServer" -OperationMasterRole 0,1,2,3,4

And this is it? no extra steps?

If your intent is to move all FSMO roles from one server to a new server then that's the command you want to use.

Will do this... Thanks.

Is the command run from the current FSMO holder or from the target?
