Dear Experts

      Thanks for the help on the drive issue and we were able to get it working.

       I hope you can help me with this one problem I have now, we would like to transfer the operation master role (RID and Infrasture) over to another DC, however we cannot because the server that is the operation master now is offline and we cannot  get it back on line.

     Is there away to tranfer the role to the DC from the one that is offline?

That procedure list the steps to seize the role. Use the second procedure, obviously.
Good Luck!
