  • How to Transfer FSMO Roles?

    I have installed windows server 2003 as domain controller in my first machine .For Replicating Active Directory,fault tolerance, load balancing, and performance i use another machine running windows server 2003 and make it Additional domain controller.Both computers are now in "Active Direcrory Sites & Serveices".

    Due to some reasons i want to remove active directory from my Additional domain controller but it is not allowing me.Please let me know what is the issue ? if there is Transferring FSMO Roles problem then how can i do it ?
    thanks in advance for the help.

    What FSMO roles does the machine you want to DCPROMO down holds?
    Are you intending to rebuid the machine at all?

      well i don't know that what is the problem that why my member server is not uninstalling Active Directory.I think that both machines have a relationship of trust & they are transfering their update each other.

      How u uninstall AD from member machine? Yes i want to rebult the active directoy again after uninstalling it from member server.

        If it has AD installed it's not a member server no more it's a Domain Controller.
        I uninstall it this way: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../cc740017.aspx
        However, you can force a removal: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/332199 and if you have 2003 sp1 a check is made to see if the server holds any FSMO roles or is a GC and prompts for appropriate action.
        Reinstall windows and then DCpromo back again!
        May I ask what are you trying to achieve and what the reason for this is?
