Hello all,

I have active directory 2012r2 forest\ domain function level 2008r2, i added addition domain controller 2019 forest\ domain function level is 2008r2. i moved FSMO role "NTDSUTIL" to 2019 and i run netdom query fsmo and i moved to AD 2019. then i check FSMO role holder from ADSIEDIT but it still poitng to the old DC "2012r2", i tried to modified it manually but i got the following error:

59754-image.png

operation failed. error code 0x20ae the role owner could not be read.

And i noticed that group policy management console is not opening. When i moved FSMO roles i used sizing command not transferred command.

What else can i do to move FSMO roles with no error and demote the old DC.

Thank You

    Please run;

    Dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:%computername% >c:\dcdiag.log
    repadmin /showrepl >C:\repl.txt
    ipconfig /all > C:\dc1.txt
    ipconfig /all > C:\dc2.txt

    then put unzipped text files up on OneDrive and share a link.

    @Dave Patrick

    I moved FSMO role successfully. what i did is:

    1- I moved FSMO back to the old DC "2012r2"
    2- then i raised forest\ domain function level to 2012r
    3 then i forced replication
    4- then move FSMO to the new DC 2019 "again"
    5 but the FSMO role holder was still pointing to the old DC, so i change it manually
    6- then forced replication
    7- i demote the old DC
