we think about FSMO roles as its important and we know the traditional NTDSUTIL way of transferring and seizing FSMO roles which takes few minutes.
To transfer all 5 of the FSMO roles.
Move-ADDirectoryServerOperationMasterRole -Identity “Target_DC_name” –OperationMasterRole PDCEmulator,RIDMaster,InfrastructureMaster,SchemaMaster,DomainNamingMaster
transfer all 5 FSMO roles using numbers.
Move-ADDirectoryServerOperationMasterRole -Identity “Target_DC_Name” –OperationMasterRole 0,1,2,3,4
seize the roles using the –Force parameter.
Move-ADDirectoryServerOperationMasterRole -Identity “Target_DC_name” –OperationMasterRole PDCEmulator,RIDMaster,InfrastructureMaster,
Of course could have used the short version
Move-ADDirectoryServerOperationMasterRole -Identity “Target_DC_Name” –OperationMasterRole 0,1,2,3,4 -force
command line syntax you can use role numbers in place of the role names. The following list details the role number for each of the five FSMO roles.
PDC Emulator – 0
RID Master – 1
Infrastructure Master – 2
Schema Master – 3

Public Folder Updates in Exchange 2013 CU6
Exchange Server 2013 Cumulative Update 6 (CU6) was released today and provides several important updates for modern Public Folders. This blog post introduces you to the updates delivered in CU6 and discusses our on-going investments in public folders.
10x Increase in Public Folder Limits
CU6 delivers the first round of investments we have made to scale up the limits for Public Folders in Exchange Server 2013. CU6 raises the folder count limit to 100,000 folders. This is a 10x increase over the prior limit as defined in the Exchange Server 2013 limits for public folders. This enables you to migrate and deploy larger Public Folder hierarchies on premises with Exchange Server 2013. Customers can immediately take advantage of this new scale by deploying CU6.
