FRS to DFS Migration and Diagnostic Tools RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    In our environment, all of our domain controllers are running Windows 2008, using FRS. We plan very soon to cut over to DFS, so we can add Domain Controllers running Server 2019 to the domain.

    It appears there are several tools to verify domain replication, namely 1)FRSdiag tool, 2)Ultrasound 3)ADReplStatus
    1. The FRSdiag tool doesn't appear to work on Windows 10.
    2. The Ultrasound tool is no longer available.

    The ADReplStatus tool installs and runs on Windows 10. My question is, will it verify AD replication in an environment with Server 2008, currently running FRS?

  • I'd suggest verifying general health is good before starting migration. If you needed help. Please run;

    • Dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:%computername% >c:\dcdiag.log
    • repadmin /showrepl >C:\repl.txt
    • ipconfig /all > C:\dc1.txt
    • ipconfig /all > C:\dc2.txt
    • (etc. as other DC's exist)

      then put unzipped text files up on OneDrive and share a link.
