Remember, in AD, all DCs are peers. The FMSO roles are held by certain
computers. So, couldn't you create a DC for an existing domain, make it a
GC, turn it off, turn it back on on another separate test network, and
capture the FMSO roles? I believe there is a KB on forcing capture or
whatever it is called if the DC with the FMSO roles is no longer available.

Brian Desmond is an Active Directory MVP and a really bright guy. You can
trust his blog.

 

I agree with the steps he has listed.

 

I think the steps are documented in the Active Directory Operations Guide
(but I haven't checked). It's available for download from microsoft.com.

All,

 

  I have been searching for the past 3 hours and can not find much on
building a test lab from a production 2003 AD environment.  I have located
the following link:

 

http://briandesmond.com/blog/archive/2003/11/25/251.aspx

 

   In NT4 I could just build a BDC and promote it to PDC off the wire and go
from there...  I can not believe that Microsoft doesn't have a post
regarding best practices for doing this with an AD environment.  

 I do not expect someone to tell me how to do this - just looking for
references on the web that can support the steps listed in the site I have
provided.

 

Regards,

 

Chris
