  • Transfer roles when adding new WS2k8 R2 DC in child domain

    Hi all,

    Now I want to add 1 new WS2k8 R2 DC in child domain (this child domain has only 1 WS2k DC )

    After that, I will demote the WS2k DC. So that, do I need to transfer any role from old DC to new DC?

    Yes -- you will need to transfer the domain specific FSMOs (PDC emulator, RID master, Infrastructure master) Since only the old and new DCs are involved, transfer should be automatic when you unPromo the 2K machine
