Updated: February 28, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

This topic explains how to use the Active Directory module for Windows PowerShell to transfer (“seize”) an operations master (also known as flexible single master operations or FSMO) role.

The following example demonstrates how to seize an operations master role:

Move-ADDirectoryServerOperationMasterRole -Identity FABRIKAM-DC1 -OperationMasterRole RIDMaster,InfrastructureMaster,DomainNamingMaster -Force

For a full explanation of the parameters that you can pass to Move-ADDirectoryServerOperationMasterRole, at the Active Directory module command prompt, type Get-Help Move-ADDirectoryServerOperationMasterRole –detailed, and then press ENTER.
