    [FONT=&quot]Hello Guys,

    I’m planning to transfer a Domain Controller (DC1) which is also our primary DNS. Coming from old building going to new data center. Definitely IP address will be change into different segment.. Second Domain Controller (DC2) is already up and running in new data center..

    How do I make things smooth without affecting our production? Any steps needed? Here are the FSMO roles of these servers:[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]PDC Master: DC1[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]RID Master: DC1[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Infrastructure Master: DC1[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Schema Master: DC2[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Domain Naming Master: DC2[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Global Catalog Server: DC2[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot][/FONT] [FONT=&quot]
    Do I need to transfer all roles to DC2 before shutting down DC1?.. What about DNS?. Wouldn’t there be an issue since DC1 is set as primary, and DC2 in secondary? Can DC2 resolve DNS queries even though DC1 is dead?
