Ensure that original server holding fsmo role is offline and reboot this dc and try again

The original server holding the role is offline.   I also rebooted the server holding all FSMO roles.   Still receive the same error. Any ideas??

Logon to target server with domain admins
Open command prompt as run as administrator and then try seize fsmo with ntdsutil

So what we did was actually use the GUI to seize the role and it worked.   IN ADUC Right click and change infrastructure master roles and it prompted to Force Seize.     very weird but it worked.
