Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This article, entitled <a href=”http://www.petri.co.il/transferring_fsmo_roles.htm”>How can I transfer some or all of the FSMO Roles from one DC to another?</a> – may be of help. I pasted an excerpt below. Thanks.

<b>Excerpt</b>: “<i>Windows 2000/2003 Active Directory domains utilize a Single Operation Master method called FSMO (Flexible Single Master Operation), as described in Understanding FSMO Roles in Active Directory.

In most cases an administrator can keep the FSMO role holders (all 5 of them) in the same spot (or actually, on the same DC) as has been configured by the Active Directory installation process. However, there are scenarios where an administrator would want to move one or more of the FSMO roles from the default holder DC to a different DC.

Moving the FSMO roles while both the original FSMO role holder and the future FSMO role holder are online and operational is called Transferring, and is described in this article.</i>”
