How to seize FSMO roles on Windows Server 2012 R2 (Explained)

Support NLB Solutions –

In this video I am going to show you how you can seize FSMO roles from a Domain Controller that is permanently unavailable. Please note that you need to be 100% sure that the current FSMO holder is not going to be powered on back in the domain after you seize the roles. It is NOT a good idea to seize FSMO roles in case of temporary outage of the FSMO holder (network outage, power supply failure). You can check Technet article on how to perform metadata cleanup with GUI and/or NTDSUTIL:

  6. dear all i had a Power problem with the main 2012 R2 AD DC and i had to do the recovery after i fix the power supply on it >>> now i had this problem …. (This server is the owner of the following FSMO role, but does not consider it valid. For the partition which contains the FSMO, this server has not replicated successfully with any of its partners since this server has been restarted. Replication errors are preventing validation of this role) and the other one … (The DFS Replication service stopped replication on the folder with the following local path: C:WindowsSYSVOLdomain. This server has been disconnected from other partners for 71 days, which is longer than the time allowed by the MaxOfflineTimeInDays parameter (60). DFS Replication considers the data in this folder to be stale, and this server will not replicate the folder until this error is corrected) … nothing work on it any idea to get it back to work as a main domain controller
