Operations Master Failure

Operations Master Role

Consequence of Failure

Infrastructure master

Usually not an urgent problem, unless there have been a lot of user or group changes. Try to fix the problem before seizing the role.

Primary domain controller (PDC) emulator

Users may have trouble logging in, especially if the network is running in mixed mode. Unless you can make an immediate fix, seize the role and assign it to the standby unit.

Relative ID master

Usually not an urgent problem, unless enough objects are added to a domain to cause the current batch of relative IDs to be used up. Try to fix the problem before seizing the role.

Domain naming master

Usually not an urgent problem, until you need to add or remove a domain from the forest. Try to fix the problem before seizing the role.

Schema master

Almost never a problem, unless an administrator wants to modify the Active Directory Schema, either manually or through software.
