Learn how to seize a FSMO role.
- [Instructor] Transferring a FSMO role…from one domain controller to another…is a pretty straightforward and simple process,…when both domain controllers are up and running…and communicating easily.…But what happens when the domain controller…that's hosting a FSMO suddenly becomes unavailable,…or unexpectedly before we could transfer the role?…Well the solution is we do what's called seize the role…from that other domain controller.…So to demonstrate this, I'd like to first of all show you…that DC-1, which is hosting most of our FSMOs,…is in the off state.…
So you can see here in my Hyper-V manager, DC-1 is off.…And that is because I shut it down,…therefore made it unavailable.…So let's connect to DC-2 and see what the result is…when we try to transfer the role.…Here in the Server Manager,…I am going to go to the Tools menu,…and select Active Directory Domains and Trusts,…because this is where we can see…the domain naming master role.…And you'll see that right away,…I'm already dealing with error messages.…
And it says you cannot modify domain or trust information…
