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.
