2 Servers - Domain Controller
Posted on 2016-10-26
We have taken over the IT for a company, basically their old IT company have sold them a new Dell Server which hasn't been setup right.
Server01 - running Print Server, DHCP and Exchange 2010 currently
Server02 - a mirror of the AD on Server01 but all client machines are using this for authentication to AD, DNS and GPO etc.
Our client is running out of space on Server01 (1.9Gb free on C) which is stopping emails from being received, this was the main reason for the new server, however because this hasn't been setup right they have now decided to move to Office365 and shut Server01 down, which is around 5-6 years old anyway.
Of course before we do that I will install DHCP onto Server02 along with the Shared Printers.
When I run NetDOM /query FSMO from one of the machines it comes back with:
Schema master SERVER01.domain.local
Domain naming master SERVER01.domain.local
RID pool manager SERVER01.domain.local
Infrastructure master SERVER01.domain.local
Does this mean if we turn Server01 off AD will not work on Server02
