  • Current schema master (offline): ERROR - Help

    Hi,


    Recently migrated from sbs2003 to Win 2008 R2 (DC) & Echange 2010 (Member server Win 2008 R2).
    I moved everything over and transferred all 5 FSMO roles to Win 2008 R2 (DC) successfully. everything was working fine for a week But now in AD schema on DC it shows Current schema master (offline) ERROR. SBS 2003 machine was offline at the time of active directory schema check.


    Netdom query fsmo shows that only the schema master is pointing to sbs 2003 server.allother roles points tpo win 2008 R2 DC. I haven't decomissioned the SBS2003.

    I don't know how the schema master role revert back to sbs2003.

    I haven't tried anythng yet. Can someone please advice what will be the best method to restore/transfer schema master to Win 2008 R2 dc.

    Also what needs to be done on Echange 2010 (Member server Win 2008 R2) to rectify the issue.

    Thanks in advance,

    BRS

        Just to echo, make sure you seize the schema role from a schema admin account and keep the sbs machine off the network.
