  • You will have more if you have more than one domain.

    What roles do you see, and how did you find them?

    Edit: This blog post shows how to find them.

  • Greetings,

                     FSMO Roles are masters which is designated responsible for specific Domain Controller tasks in AD.

    1. Forest Level Masters (common for the forest)

    Schema Master and Domain Naming Master

    2. Domain Level Masters (This changes with the number of domains)

    PDC Emulator, RID Master, Infrastructure Master.

    In addition to the FSMO roles there are partitions (Contexts) in which the actual objects are stored. These are the partitions which are replicated between domain controllers.

    1. Schema Partition, 2. Domain Naming Context, 3.Configuration Partition, 4. DomainDNSZONES

    5. ForestDNSZONES.

    Thanks

    Eric

  • what about these 2

    Domain DNS zone master role

    Forest dns zone master role

    Monday, December 19, 2016 12:33 PM
  • I presume those are partitions used for replication DNS zone files.

    1. Domain DNS Zone is the partition which are used to replicate DNS zone files to all the domain controllers in the domain.

    2. Forest DNS Zones is the partition which are used to replicate DNS zone files to all the domain controllers in the forest.

    These are not master roles but partitions.

    Regards

    Eric

  • Hi sujit,

                 There are only 5 master in Active directory. there is no master for Domain DNS Zones. If we type the said command "netdom query FSMO" there are only 5 masters listed.

    The partitions which i mentioned in my previous reply are physical partitions in NTDS.DIT database file. There is no master required to store data for.

    Further, we can connect to the partitions using adsiedit by using the distinguished name of the partitions. 

    Request you to follow Microsoft articles for authentic information.
