    Hi,

    I'm trying to change FSMO as per
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;324801. I did
    "regsvr32 schmmgmt.dll", but when I tried to Change Domain Controller in
    Active Directory Schema, I get

    The domain controller could not be set. The server is not operational.

    May I ask what am I missing here? The original DC is up and running. Do
    I need to shut it down first?

    Regards,
    Norman

    I'm trying to change FSMO as per
    My bad. I forgot to add DC (AD) role to my new W2K3 DC. I also found out
    that I cannot have 2 DNS (1 for external ISP) on my new W2K3 DC.

    Regards,
    Norman
