    Transferring the Domain Naming Master & Schema Master role after the server has gone

    Hi all

    I think i am stuffed. On my home setup the DC that had the Domain Naming Master & Schema Master roles is dead. I cannot get the old server online at all.

    How can i move these roles over to the other DC once the old one has gone please? I still have the RID Master, PDC Emulator, and Infrastructure Masters roles on a server.

    Thanks

    Google is your friend.. the phrase you wanted to look for was "seize FSMO roles".

    Using Ntdsutil.exe to transfer or seize FSMO roles to a domain controller

    Scroll down to "Seize FSMO roles"

    This works, I have had to do this more times than I should have.

    I am just going through this now.

    Last week i tried to upgrade the scheme on a couple of DCs only to find that the schema master was unavailable as the server had died!

    Just preparing to seize the roles using the following instructions:

    Seize the schema master role: Active Directory

    What exactly does this do and how? Does it just create the role on the new DC in question?

    Anyone any experiences of this going horribly wrong?!?!
