Active Directory – Identify FSMO Role holders

Sometimes you need to know who’s who you in your Active Directory. What domain controller is responsible for what.

In that case, all you need to do is to run a very useful command.

Open a command line on a domain controller and type:

netdom query fsmo

This will give you the FSMO role owners for the domain controller domain.

If you have a scenario of several domain in a forest, and you want to query a specific domain, you can add the /domain parameter.

netdom query /domain:domainname.TLD fsmo
