    Does the five FSMO roles comes by default in the DC server or else we have to install them from some where means in the global catalog service.

    Thanks for the Video. What is the actual reason that we should only have one Global Catalog Server? I’ve seen elsewhere that having two Global Catalog Servers is ok but also as you have stated just having the one (in a two DC environment).

    What is the reason why you recommend that the Infrastructure Master role is not held by a DC that also hosts the GC?
