  • FSMO Roles after adding W2012 DC to 2008R2 Domain

    Hi Guys,


    Quick question when adding a Server 2012r2 DC to and existing Server 2008r2 domain. Do you need to move FSMO roles to the newest OS/DC version?


    Setup:

    Main Site: 2 * 2008r2 DCs(one of theses have FSMO)
    Branch 1: 1 * 2008r2 DC

    Adding new Branch site with new Server 2012r2 DC


    Thanks in advanced
    Mark.

    No, present FSMO holder can stay until you are ready to retire earlier DCs and raise the FLs

      Cheers Ossian,

      Confirmed.......... thank you,

      didn't fancy moving the FSMO roles to single site DC when they're currently on a nice solid VMWARE setup.

      Thanks again
      Regards
