Background: CloudConnect requires that Domain Controllers hosted on the platform hold all 5 FSMO roles. To ensure a seamless experience decommissioning the on-premise Domain Controller, it is important to verify that these roles have transferred successfully.

Process:

1.) Open a command prompt on a domain-joined computer.

2.) Run the following command:

netdom query fsmo

3.) Verify that all 5 FSMO roles are pointing toward the Cloud DC.


Applies to: CloudConnect partners

Additional Notes: For information on transferring the 5 FSMO roles to the Cloud DC from the on-premise DC, see: Activate the Domain Controller for your Extended Environment (PrivateDomain)
