I’ve wrote a nice batch script how you can transfer FSMO Roles from one domaincontroller to a another. With some simple choices you can move roles between domaincontrollers in a AD environment.
Therefor i use the NTDSUTIL.EXE of the Windows Server Support Tools wich is installed by default on a Windows Domaincontroller.
Before you can use the script: Look if the path to NTDSUTIL.EXE is in the %PATH% variable, to call it globally. Or copy NTDSUTIL.EXE into the script directory. CHOICE.EXE is used to handle the choosable options in the script.
Script call: FSMOtransfer.bat [DNSDOMAIN]
Where [DNSDOMAIN] Must be a Fully Qualified Domain name (FQDN) of a existing Microsoft Active Directory Domain. The script works only if you are logged on as a administrator
