All,
Routing and remote access was shutdown on our primary domain controller.   Is there a way to reconfig the pdc function with out messing up my domain.  should I seize the FSMO roles on my secondary dc and go from there?  Help Please.

how many dcs do you have? is the server completely down that you are thinking about seizing fsmo roles? You only want to seize fsmo roles if the DC is completely offline and not accessible. Other than that we should be doing a role transfer.

what are you trying to do here? what is the main issue? please elaborate a little more.

Thanks for your help
 I got the DC back up that day.  I apologize for not replying sooner but I have been a little under water for the last few.  I would like to rebuild the machine as it lived through a major environmental disaster, ( the server room temp got pushed to over 115 F )  should i just take the server off-line and promote one of the other DCs temporarily, rebuild and then go from there?  Any advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks again for your initial response

I would recommend promoting another DC for now until you have the time to get the existing one up and running. Don't forget you will have to transfer FSMO roles if you are unable to transfer then you will need to seize the roles.

And don't forget to put a fan or AC in that server room! Lol
