FSMO Roles

About how long do I need to wait after moving FSMO roles to another DC before I can demote the one I moved the roles from?  Isn't 15 minutes pretty much default on replication?

Thanks!

if your server replication is already in-place then you are good to move FSMO roles.

just to verify see the event logs and DCDIAG /V for any issue.

Hi,

It will be ok as soon as you move the roles to different server. Perform netdom query fsmo and see it's pointing to the correct server?

Yes, they're good to go.  I just wanted to make sure before I demote this last 2003 DC.
