FSMO Roles-best practices

By advancedgeek ·
Just wondering what everyone else does about the placement of FSMO roles on their AD network.

I have always put the global catalog on all of the domain controllers in my forest...really no need for infrastructure master.

I also always keep the schema master, and domain naming master on the same dc (less complicated). Does anyone keep their schema master role on a seperate dc from the other ones?

FSMO Master placement

by BFilmFan In reply to FSMO Roles-best practices

That is a very common deployment for an AD forest in large corporations. I use it myself quite often.

so you agree

you put the global catalog on all servers as well? I was talking with someone else about this and he was saying that he NEVER puts the shema master on the same dc as the domain naming master.
