Get FSMO role back after primary DC down

Postby blin » Mon Nov 28, 2016 5:21 pm

Q:The client has a old server as primary DC was shutdown. Is it possible to get the FSMO role back?

A: In that case, seize the FSMO role to the other DC and run metadata cleanup to remove all old references in the AD database from it.

Then cleanup DNS zones, DNS servers and AD sites and services from the old DC.
