    to tell
    what fsmo roles belong to what ever to verify?

    wow! thanks... but i'm not that of a techie so i'm really not sure how to
    these scripts. i thought there was some kind of command line tool or
    even a mmc snap in that would show it...

  4. Yes - just open the appropriate tool that you used to transfer the roles and
    it will show you who the current role holder is.

    hmmm, i used ntdsutil to do the transfer. i'm looking at all the
    functions it can do and i can't find something that says it will
    list current roles...

  6. Ntdsutil has a command to check FSMO roles, but it doesn't tell you which
    machines hold them. To check the RID master, PDC, and Infrastructure
    master; open Administrative Tools/AD Users and Computers. Right cllick the
    domain and select Operations Masters. The domain naming master is checked
    in AD Domains and Trusts. You will have to add the AD schema snapin to
    check the schema master role.
