How to Transfer FSMO roles using PowerShell



The fastest way to tranfare FSMO role is by powershell, just execute on line command from powershell as administrator :

Move-ADDirectoryServerOperationMasterRole -Identity <TargerDC> -OperationMasterRole pdcemulator, ridmaster, infrastructuremaster, schemamaster, domainnamingmaster

This will move the roles:

  • Schema Master (forest-wide)
  • Domain Naming Master (forest-wide)
  • RID Master (domain-specific)
  • PDC Emulator (domain-specific)
  • Infrastructure Master (domain-specific)

Check the current status with :

netdom query fsmo

And that that !

Good Luck
