I cannot change the operations master to the other machine because I cannot get it revived - so it says it's "offline" when I go to the AD Scema snap in.  I had AD running on both machines when th op master died,and the AD seemed to be replicating fine, in that if I made a new account on the op master it showed up in users and computers on the second DC, so I thought it wouldn't be a big deal.  I get an error saying that "the account identifier failed to initialize properly..."blah, blah and I think that this has to do with the operations master roles not being transfered.  I cannot add users and everything is messed up.  I am an AD lightweight, so go easy on me please...Can anyone help?
