Decommissioning Small Business Server 2000 Part 1

When decommissioning a Small Business Server (or any Windows Server) you need to make sure that any FSMO roles hosted on the server are moved off the server before you decommission it. If you fail to do this you can seize the FSMO role(s) later but the best practice is to move it before hand.

Petri IT Knowledgebase has a good selection of articles on how to Determine FSMO Role Holders, Transfer FSMO Roles, and Microsoft has a good Knowledge base article on how to Size the roles.

Later I will explain how to Decommission Exchange 2000 running on Small Business Server 2000.
