    Curious - Why this message in Event Viewer on/after demotion of DC1 this
    afternoon even though I had successfully transferred all 3 domain-level FSMO
    roles to DC2 yesterday morning? (DCs are in same switch, btw) - I am sure
    DC2 roleholder for all 3 cause logged in Event Viewer, showed in ADUC,
    confirmed by Ntdsutil and dcdiag tests to view/confirm availability of
    Operations Masters as per MS doc instructions.

    The operations master role represented by the following object has been
    transferred to the following domain controller at the request of a user.

    Object:
    CN=Infrastructure,DC=DomainDnsZones,DC=us,DC=corp,DC=abc,DC=com
    Domain controller:
    CN=NTDS
    Settings,CN=DC2,CN=Servers,CN=NY,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=corp,DC=abc,DC
    =com
    Previous operations master role owner:
    CN=NTDS
    Settings,CN=DC1,CN=Servers,CN=NY,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=corp,DC=abc,DC
    =com

    Thanks,
    Joan

  2. Hi Joan,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    It seems to be a information not error. It can be logged when AD replicate
    the information of role change to other DCs in Domain.

    If you did not get any problem in the domain, I think you can ignore it
    safely.

    Have a nice day!
