  Thank you very much for your help Daniel. I run this command:

sudo /usr/local/samba/bin/net fsmo transfer --role=rid 

and I'm getting this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
line 99, in _run
     return self.run(*args, **kwargs)
line 186, in run
     self.transfer_role(role, samdb)
line 91, in transfer_role
_ldb.LdbError: (53, 'rootdse_modify: unknown attribute to change!')

It looks like I'm pointing to the wrong ldap database or the attribute 
for RID is missing. Thanks once more for your help.

Kind Regards,
