 FSMO operation failed request. Can not connect with current FSMO holder

I'm working in remote and I can't stop the actual Domain Controller the new Domain Controller is virtual and I can stop,

Which FSNO role are you trying to move? Do NOT seize RID master if the old one is running or indeed will come back online.
Have you established where the FSMOs are? Are they on the 'actual' domain cotroller at all?
