How to move the AD-Elect Role.

You can move the AD-Elect deployment role one server to another in both Read-Only and Read Write modes.

To move AD-Elect role to a different server:

  1. Select the Servers tab.Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the Servers tab again to ensure you are working with the Configuration information page.
  2. Click the server that holds the Elect Role. The server details page opens.
  3. Click the AD-Integrated Roles tab.
  4. Under Elected Roles, select the check boxes of the zones for which you want to move the Elect status.
  5. Click Action, then select Move Elect Status. The Move Elect Status page open.
  6. Under Elect to Server, select the destination server from the Managed Windows server drop-down menu.
  7. Click Confirm. Address Manager returns you to the server details page.
    Note: As with any role change, changing AD-Elect does not take effect until you import from the demoted and promoted servers in Read-Only mode, or until you deploy to the demoted and promoted servers in Read-Write mode.
