Transfer FSMO to another DC


G

Guest

Hi,

Encounter problem on transfer Domain Naming Master role to another
additional DC. The error is:
The transfer of the current operations master role cannot be performed for
the following reason: Only DSAs configured to be Global Catalog servers
should be allowed to hold the Domain Naming Master FSMO role.

Is it that, my main DC need to be down before i do any transfer for Domain
Naming Master and Schema Master.

I still have some sevices installed on my main DC, thought of just transfer
all FSMO roles over to additional DC first.

Can anyone advise.

Regards
VN

Haven't heard of this requirement, but I'd suggest that if you have a
single forest/domain, that you make all your DC's a GC.
