If you create an RODC, disable the network card, then logout, do you have anyway to log back into the server?

Any attempts to logon with any domain account gives the error "There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request".

This would make sense as the network card has been disabled from inside the os.  Is there anyway to relogon to the system to reenable the network card?

You have to log on to the console using the local admin.

This is a domain controller, there are no local accounts.

if you've logged in to the server as admin then the credentials should be cached and let you log on to the console.

By default RODC's do not cache credentials.

Perfect!
If the RODC is a VM install a new NIC that has a driver native to the OS, once the OS is up it will install the NIC and you'll be able to get in :).
