I have the following AD environment:
Functional Level: 2003
1 Windows Server 2003 = PDC, all FSMOs, Primary DNS, DHCP
2 Windows Server 2008 = Domain Controller, DNS
1 Windows Server 2008 R2 = Domain Controller, DNS
I will be transferring the FSMO roles to one of the Windows Sever 2008 DC.
I have a updates DPM System State backup (this includes Active Directory) of the PDC holding the FSMO roles, but will this backup be enough in case something goes wrong on the FSMO transfers?
After I transfer the FSMOs over, how can I verify that the FSMO roles were transferred properly and that they are working properly in the new 2008 DC?
