no major issues, you can simply seize the role if it's going to be offline permenantly.

If its' single forest/domain environment the Infrastructure Master has nothing to do :) So, you don't have the Infrastructure holder.

You will have an Infastructre master role, I am not sure why that comment has been made, I also don't know what the relevance of the MVP link is?

It should have, but has nothing to do :) You need only GC (Global Catalog) in your environment. Please read above's blog which explains GC and Infrastructure role :)

Just because it has nothing to do does not mean it is not required.

Suggesting it is not needed is completely incorrect.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

At the end of the day, if it irretrievably fails then you will need to seize it as per my first post.

@demazter: You're right. In my first comment, one line is missing :/
"So, you don't have the Infrastructure holder. Consider role seizing to the new DC to have all FSMO oprative.

@DrUltima, apologies for that. The Author did have at one point a question open for the PDC Emulator Role. I added my comment into the wrong question. Sorry for that.
