Hi, I got four windows 2016 domain controllers (two DCs in each site) and would like to know what are the best practices of distributing the FSMO roles on the DCs in this scenario.

 

Thank you

KY

Hi KY,

 

You should provide more information so that IT pros can give you some suggestions.

For example, I have one domain in a forest.
