Move Schema owner fsmo role to another DC

Hello,

We have windows 2000/2003 environment with 4 DC'S.  Is it possible to move this role without demoting the DC? We also have a business critical application in this server that needs to run on a DC.

Thanks

Yes you can - http://www.petri.co.il/transferring_fsmo_roles.htm 
but WHY do you want to move the Schema Master?
The schema master should be on the same machine as the Domain Naming master, and on a single domain ALL the FSMO roles are best kept on a single machine.

And this requires no outage and will not affect the DC it is moving from?

We have split the fsmo roles over the DC'S to include one of the roles in Montreal. We need to move the Schema because the DC it is on now is a little "flakey" to say the least. We will look eventually at moving the app but in the meantime we need to move the schema off it.
