FSMO roles are important role in server . these are schema master,domain naming master in forest level while infrastructure master,pdc emulator and RID master in every dc level. each roles plays important parts . if FSMO roles fails it has not direct impact till we not made changes on schema ,or not added any new object or any new user tries to reconnect. but two methods piercing and seizing is used to transfer these roles to another server .In 1. piercing we register schema using srvr32scheamgmt.dll and transfer roles through schema snap-in to another server to the server which already an schema holder ( some roles) 2.in cash of total fail we go to ADRM of througg cmd use NTdsutil to transfer roles . however infrastructure roles are not places in GC server .
