Server 2008 DC FSMO roles

Are there such FSMO roles on a Server 2008 DC? I have successfully added an
additional Server 2008 as a DC into a Windows 2003 domain. My other DC is
running Windows 2003 R2. Is there such a route to transfer FSMO roles to the
new windows 2008 DC?

Hello zaz,

You can transfer the FSMO roles to the 2008 DC, see here:

Ofcourse regsvr32 is 32bit. You didn't mention 64bit. There you can use the
ntdsutil command line tool for that.

OK done that. Only difference is that you cannot run the 'regsvr32
schmmgmt.dll' on a 64bit system. So I went to to the windows 2003 server and
did it here and connected to the server 2008 system on schema snap-in and
transferred ok.

Re: Server 2008 DC FSMO roles

Hello,

I,m looking for an easy way to tranfer the domein controller and setting from my old server running windows 2003 to the same operating system but new server, I got programs running on the old server to erase computers trough the network its all I want to do, the server works as stand alone I just need to tranfer the domain controller with the Node to let computers startup my program.

Thx for help!

Hello Dewippe,

Install an additional DC to the existing domain and move the FSMO roles to
the new installed server, make it Global catalog and DNS server. Then reconfigure
all machines to use the new DC/DNS as preferred DNS on the NIC.
