Moving Operations Master Roles



I have ServerA and ServerB. ServerA is the Schema
Master, Domain Naming Master, PDC Emulator, and RID
Master. ServerB is the Infrastructure Master.

I am going to bring online ServerC. I need to move all
the roles of ServerA to ServerC.

After all the roles are moved to ServerC I will running
DCPROMO on ServerA so it is no longer a DC then
decommissioning ServerA

Are there any issues with doing this? How do I do this?




Hi there is FSMO roles are moved of the particular DC during demote
automatically, How ever if you want to move them to a dedicated server as in
your case you should move them self be fore demote the existing holder.
