  • FSMO Roles

    Hi
    I have a domain with 3 domain controllers :
    W2K3 server and 2 W2k8 R2 servers.
    I want to remove the W2K3 server as a domain controler.
    I have moved all FSMO Roles to the 2 W2K8 servers.
    I have verified that the fsmo roles have been moved to the other 2 servers.
    But if the w2k3 server is down I am unable to Login to the domain.

    What else do I need to do before I demote the server?


    Thank

    Itamar

    Are the other servers Global Catalogs?
    If not, make them so

      Are the new DC's also DNS servers for the domain? If so, do the DNS client settings on all domain members point to the new DC's for DNS?

        Check the directory service logs on all the servers and make sure AD is replicating and that there are SYSVOL shares on both the new DCs.
