|Subject:||FSMO roles Placement|

I just migrated from NT to Win2k3 and have a couple of questions. I now have
-2 Win2k3 DC's
-2 NT BDC's (from the migration, will eventually retire these)
1. One DC will be a fileserver, the other will run Exchange2k3. All the
roles are currently on the FS except for the infrastr master. I tried to
transfer the infrastructure master but got a warning stating that this should
not be done because it is a global catalog. Should all the FSMO roles reside
on one server?
2. Is it recommended to point the NT servers to my DNS such as I do with the
Win2k3 servers? I think so but just want another opinion.
