@microsoft Hi All,,

 

I want to upgrade my live domain server from 2003 std with service pack-2 to windows server 2019 std. So any buddy kindly help me. Suppose can i'm transfer all fsmo roles like:- schema master, domain naming master, PDC master, RID master and infrastructure master so it's possible or not.

 

Kindly see my domain environment struct-er  of our  company.   

 

Regards 

Mohammad Amir

Yes, you can transfer them once you have your new server up and running

I do suggest you post this in another forum, not the Microsoft teams forum :)

@adam deltinger  Thanks for reply. But sure if i'm move all roles and after move all roles it is all services is to be working as a normally.

Install a new server with Windows 2012 R2, promote it to DC and move all FSMO roles to that server, remove your Win 2003 Domain Controller and then raise the functional level to Win 2012 R2. Install a new Windows 2019 server, promote it to DC and move FSMO roles to that server. Uninstall 2012R2 DC and raise functional levels to Win 2016.
