    Eventually we will be bringing our first DC out of commission. We will have 2 other DC’s in operation by then.

    As I understand it DCPROMO will automatically reasign the FSMO roles to a new server if you DCPROMO a server that is handling one or more FSMO roles.

    Is it best to transfer the roles manually before I remove the first DC or is it safe to let DCPROMO do it’s magic? We will not care which DC get’s the FSMO roles after the original DC is gone.
