Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2

To seize the schema master role

  1. Open an ADAM tools command prompt.

  2. At the command prompt, type:

    dsmgmt

  3. At the dsmgmt: command prompt, type:

    roles

  4. At the fsmo maintenance: command prompt, type:

    connections

  5. At the server connections: command prompt, type:

    connect to server computername:portnumber

    where computername:portnumber is the computer name and communications port number of the ADAM instance that you want to use as the new schema master.

  6. At the server connections: command prompt, type:

    quit

  7. At the fsmo maintenance: command prompt, type:

    seize schema master

Caution

  • Do not seize the schema master role if you can transfer it instead. Seizing the schema master role is a drastic step that should be considered only if the current operations master will never be available again. For more information about transferring operations master roles, see Related Topics.

Note

  • To open an ADAM tools command prompt, click Start, point to All Programs, point to ADAM, and then click ADAM Tools Command Prompt.
