Description
This machine holds the Domain Master Role and is not a GC. These two states are incompatible. Either this machine should be made a GC or the role should be transferred to a machine that is a GC.
Comments
 
I ran into this issue on a Win2k Server, which was suffering hardware failures and needed to be decommissioned. A new 2003 server was in place and the GC function was removed from the 2000 server leading to this error. I followed the steps in ME324801 to resolve the issue. ME255504 may be relevant if the previous FMSO role holder is unavailable.
