Hi,

Please follow the below steps.

Note: It is not possible to seize FSMO roles using the graphical interface. So use below commands.

  1. Open an elevated command prompt on a working DC, type ntdsutil.
  2. Type roles.
  3. Type connection.
  4. Type connect to server <DC_name>, where <DC_name> is the name of the DC that will inherit the role.
  5. Type quit once.
  6. Type one of the following, depending on the role being seized:
    1. PDC Emulator: seize pdc
    2. Infrastructure Master: seize infrastructure master
    3. RID Master: seize rid master
    4. Domain Naming Master: seize naming master
    5. Schema Master: seize schema master
  7. Confirm that you wish to seize the role. There will be a considerable amount of output. The last line should indicate that the role has been seized.
  8. Type quit until you have exited Ntdsutil.
