When I go to change anything in my Primary roles holder ACTIV Directory  I get the titled error. I already moved the FSMO roles to another server in the forest so that is safe what do I need to do to fix this issue? Do I need to demote said server and the run DCPROMO once again or is there a fix for this issue? any help would be appreciated. I have attached .png file of the error.

Even though you had transferred your FSMO roles to another DC you need to check if the changes actually happened.
Run the command
- netdom /query fsmo

Make sure that it is pointing to the proper DC. This seems like a RID Master issue. Was this DC holding all of the roles?

You may need to demote this server and Seize the roles if the changes did not apply to the other DC you transferred them to.

You will need to make sure that if you had moved the PDC role from this server to another one that you need to configure the registry settings on the DC that you moved them to.

Configure PDC Authoritative Time Source

I would then demote this machine from the domain. If you cannot successfully do this I would seize any other roles it has (FSMO) move any other roles like DHCP etc to another server and power it down. Perform a metadata cleanup.

Promote a new DC into the environment.
