Hi,

to locate the server responsible for a FSMO role open ADSI-Edit. The responsible attribute is in every case:

fSMORoleOwner

PDC-Emulator role
Naming context: DefaultNamingContext
Path: DC=DOMAIN,DC=LOCAL
(Right-click – properties -> fSMORoleOwner)

RID Master role
Naming context: DefaultNamingContext
DC=DOMAIN,DC=LOCAL,CN=System,CN=Rid Manager$
(Right-click – properties)

Schema Master role
Naming context: Schema
DC=DOMAIN,DC=LOCAL
(Right-click – properties -> fSMORoleOwner)

Infrastructure Master role
Naming context: DefaultNamingContext
DC=DOMAIN,DC=LOCAL,CN=Infrastructure
(Right-click – properties -> fSMORoleOwner)

Domain Naming Master role
Naming context: Configuration
CN=Configuration,DC=DOMAIN,DC=LOCAL,CN=Partitions
(Right-click – properties -> fSMORoleOwner)

Cheers,

Chris

    Hi Marc,

    that’s right, but fore some reasons it could be useful to directly view -or edit- the FSMO roles directly in the Active Directory Database.

    Regards,

    Chris
