Turning the read-only domain controller feature on after install

I know Win 2008 server has a read-only feature but can this be truned on after the DC has been build and running in the Domain?

I want to retrospectively turn this on for one of my DCs.  Is it possible?

No. as far as I am aware you must do this when you run DCPROMO to create the DC

Nope, RODC is a Read Only Domain Controller and you have to define if you want to promote it as RODC during promotion process. For that you need at least Windows 2003 Forest Functional level and at least one Writable 2008 DC to be able to install RODC. If you have 2003 FFL then you need to also run

adprep /rodcprep

before install the first RODC.
