Our pdc went down the bdc was promoted to pdc and normal operations resumed. Our now bdc needs to be made pdc again. How this is achieved running Windows NT server 4 all patched up.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You change the role from BDC to PDC using Server Manager. Highlight the BDC, choose “Promote to PDC” from the Computer menu; the PDC will automatically be demoted to BDC (if it’s online).
If the PDC is offline when this happens it can no longer be used as a domain controller. Do not bring it back online. Sorry, I don’t remember how you remove/tombstone the original PDC.
