I transferred FSMO roles between two DCs for the first time (in the
course of version upgrade from 4.12 to 4.13 including DC demote). I did
it twice (once transferring to 4.13 from 4.12, once between all 4.13).
In both cases I got an error when transferring the PDC role:
# samba-tool fsmo transfer --role=pdc
ERROR: Transfer of 'pdc' role failed: Failed FSMO transfer: WERR_GEN_FAILURE
The transfer actually seems to succeed (when checking "samba-tool fsmo
show" afterwards). In logs of "losing" DC I see:
[2021/01/22 14:30:44.080710, 0]
../../source4/rpc_server/drsuapi/getncchanges.c:1413: FSMO role or
RID manager transfer owner request when not role owner
I'm not 100% sure this is from PDC role transfer, could theoretically
also be from other (succeeding) transfers.
Samba packages are from Sernet, OS is CentOS 8.
Why is this? Do I have to worry?
