The FSMO role holders can be easily found by use of the Netdom command. Netdom.exe is a part of the Windows 2000/XP/2003 Support Tools. You must either download it separately (from here Download Free Windows 2000 Resource Kit Tools) or by obtaining the correct Support Tools pack for your operating system. The Support Tools pack can be found in the \Support\Tools folder on your installation CD.

The Process

  1. On any domain controller, click Start, click Run, type CMD in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. In the Command Prompt window, type netdom query /domain: fsmo (where is the name of YOUR domain).

C:\WINDOWS>netdom query /domain:testfsmo
Schema owner server100.test.net
Domain role owner server100.test.net
PDC role server100.test.net
RID pool manager server100.test.net
Infrastructure owner server100.test.net

The command completed successfully.

Close the CMD window.
