We attempted to reset RID attributes in Active Direcory for the ACADEMIA domain with the Java-based LDAP browser. Unfortunately, these attributes are read-only and can only be modified by the SYSTEM account.
We decided that we should bring another domain controller online in order to transfer or sieze RID master operations. It was my hope that the presence of another domain controller would force the RID master to issue another pool of RIDs, and clear the problem.
The only real candidate for promotion to domain controller was SCYLD. I obtained permission from Math/CS to promote SCYLD.
