    Hi all,

    Is it possible to have stand-by FSMO role server in a Windows Server 2003 domain?

    I don't understand the following statement (mentioned in Microsoft KB: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/223346/):

    On a per-domain basis, select local primary and standby FSMO domain controllers in case a failure occurs on the primary FSMO owner.

    Plz help me to clear the confusion..

    Regards,

    This is what I understand from what you have mentioned.
    Creating a stand-by Operations Master is nothing more than configuring a direct replication partner.

    Is my understanding correct?

    Yes, for the most part, a direct replication partner in the same site. Honestly, I don't know how often this is implemented in practice, but it certainly makes sense.
