This is the output of that command.

root at DC01:~# ldbsearch --cross-ncs -H ldap://pdc -b
"DC=DomainDnsZones,DC=fisherthompson,DC=local" -s sub -Uadministrator
Password for [FISHERTHOMPSON\administrator]:
search error - LDAP error 10 LDAP_REFERRAL -  <0000202B: RefErr:
DSID-0310063C, data 0, 1 access points
        ref 1: 'DomainDnsZones.fisherthompson.local'
root at DC01:~#

wouldn't dcpromo take it out of the active directory? And then seizing it
would have the domain point to the new DC?  I have some printers and things
like that that I would really like time to transfer.  But if I can't I
can't....Or maybe even block with iptables any traffic from PDC to DC01 or
