Move FSMO Roles in Windows Server 2019

Filed under: On-Premises,Windows Server — Thomas Stensitzki at 11:34 am on Saturday, March 21, 2020  Tagged , ,

In the past, we’ve used NETDOM to identify FSMO-systems and to move assigned FSMO-roles to other Windows Server systems.

With Windows Server 2016 or newer you can use PowerShell to easily move FMSO-roles to a new domain controller.

 

Move a single FSMO-role to a new domain controller

Move-ADDirectoryServerOperationMasterRole -Identity DC01 `
-OperationMasterRole RIDMaster

 

Move all FSMO-roles to a new domain controller

Move-ADDirectoryServerOperationMasterRole -Identity DC01 `
-OperationMasterRole PDCEmulator,InfrastructureMaster,SchemaMaster,`
DomainNamingMaster,RIDMaster

Enjoy.
