This will be a very basic AD question but I just need a sanity check.
I have 2 windows 2008 domain controllers in my organization. DC1 contains all of the FSMO roles and is a GC and DC2 is a GC. If I come into work tomorrow and found that DC1 was dead, what would I need to do?
My thoughts would be to:
1. Log onto DC2 (I should still be able to login, right?)
2. Use ntdsutil.exe to seize the roles
3. Reboot the server
Have I missed anything or am I off-track?
Thank you for your time.
