Just finished publising my latest article at www.adminprep.com. This was such a fun one to write since it was something so many people have asked me about over the years. I can't believe it has taken me so long to get out to them.
I would love to find some other MVPs or MCTs that would be interested in writing a similar article so that I could publish that as well on the site. I really think it would help others out there that are working in the field. If anyone is interested just drop me a line and let me know your technology of choice.
I have seen so many Active Directory Admins use so many methods to find out who and where their FSMO role holders are. Some will use the old fashion way of going through the AD tools and viewing the roles there. Others that have experience scripting have written some elaborate script on how to view these roles.
Either way, I have hands down the quickest and easiest way to view who your FSMO role holders are. All you need to have is the Support Tools installed on the system you are using this on. Go to the Support Tools CMD Prompt and type:
netdom query fsmo
That is all that is needed. It is quick, short and as clean as possible.
