Test domain??? Aren't you a funny guy.  Just kidding. yes, I am doing this part in a test environment but the Windows DC is also up in my live environment. 

Using powershell on my Windoze DC I've transferred the 5 FSMO roles that it seems to know about (Schema master, Domain naming master, PDC, RID pool manager, Infrastructure master).  What about the other two, DomainDnsZonesMasterRole and ForestDnsZonesMasterRole?  Do they only exist to Samba or is there another way to transfer them?

So, it does work without WMI, looks like the wikipage needs updating.

None that I am aware of, but then I haven't tried it yet, but I don't 
foresee any problems, I would just add that I hope you are testing this 
in a test domain and that you have good backups.
