Transferring FSMO roles

Discussion in 'Active Directory' started by Jim in Cleveland, Jan 19, 2006.

  1. We had two Windows 2000 DC servers running on our domain. The global catolog
    server died. IN order to revive it, I had to sacrifice the other server for
    parts. I got the global catalog server up and running. This is now dying a
    slow death (it's an old computer, what can I say!!). We have a new 2003
    server ready to put on line. Before we make the transfer, I wanted to
    transfer all the FSMO to the dying server before we bring the new 2003 server
    on line. The only problem is, the server that I had to take down was
    Operation master for the RID, PDC and Infrastructure. Is there anything I
    can do to give the "still living" global catalog computer these roles?
