    Carole is a network administrator for a single-domain Windows Server 2003 network. Fernando, one of her junior administrators has told her he was unable to add several new users to the Sales department in Active Directory. Sales just hired several new people who need to be added as users to the domain. Carole does some investigating and discovers that one of her Domain Controllers that holds the FSMO role that plays a critical part in the creation of new AD objects is severely overloaded. Carole has just received a new Windows Server 2003 server and promoted it to a Domain Controller. The new server has more than enough resources to support this vital role. What should Carole do to solve Fernando’s problem?

    A. Carole should transfer the RID Master role from the overloaded server to the new Domain Controller.
    B. Carole should log onto the new DC and seize the RID Master role from the overloaded server.
    C. Carole should transfer the Infrastructure Master role from the overloaded server to the new Domain Controller.
    D. Carole should log onto the new DC and seize the Infrastructure Master role from the overloaded server.

    Answer later.

    ill go with A

    siezing should only be done in an emergancy, such as when a server is down and will never come back (fried board/disks/made redundant whilst forgetting to transfer roles) as it can cause major conflicts if two machines are online with the same role

    i will double check its not C
    but im sure its the RID master not the Infrastructure master

    Correct answer time: Ryan nailed it first...answer's A. There are really two pieces to the answer. You need to transfer control rather than seize control if the original operations master is still functioning. You only seize control if the previous server has gone "toes up" and is will never recover.

    Also, the RID Master is responsible for assigning the security IDs for each AD object that must be unique in the domain. Only a certain number of IDs are alloted at one time. If the RID master is down or overloaded when you run out, you can't create new AD objects including users.

    More tomorrow, folks.
