How to change FSMO Roles in Windows 2012

In this post we are going to explain, what we need to change all FSMO Roles in Windows 2012. If you need a little explain about FSMO roles, you can read this post.

First of all, we need to know which domain controler have each role. For this we open a powershell and launch this command

netdom query fsmo


In this case, the five roles are in IRD01DC01.domain.com


CHANGE SCHEMA MASTER

We Connect in IRD01DC01.domain.com because it server have the role that we want to change. Look for the mmc console and add Snap-in Active Directory Schema


In this console we change the Domain controler where we want to send the role (IRD01DC02.domain.com)

 

Properties -> Operation Master


Change the Schema Master to IRD01DC02.domain.com



Check in Powershell the roles states and now the Schema Role is in the second Domain Controler


CHANGE DOMAIN NAMING MASTER

On IRD01DC01 we open Active Directory Domain and Trust and change the Domain controler to IRD01DC02. Properties in Domain.com and select Operation Manager.


Change the Operation Master Role to IRD01DC02.domain.com



Check in Powershell the roles states and now the Domain Naming Master Roles is in the second Domain Controler



CHANGE PDC, RID AND INFRASTRUCTURE ROLES

On IRD01DC01.domain.com open Active Directory Users and Computers and change the Domain Controler to IRD01DC02.domain.com. Properties Operation Masters



Select PDC Role and change to IRD01DC02.domain.com


Check in Powershell the roles states and now the PDC Roles is in the second Domain Controler


Now change RIP Role 


And check the state Roles


And finally the Infrastructure Role


And check the Roles


Now, all FSMO roles are in the other server, and we can power off or delete the server IRD01DC01.domain.com and we dont have any problem in our forest.
