Scenario #1.  Use this procedure to redesiginate an existing replicated RMS node as the MDS (master/Primary node), in OID and later. 


Scenario #2.  Use this procedure when the the MDS (primary) node is completely gone and no recent backups exist.  Since administrative master/Primary is gone, remtool fails and DRG cannot be managed or reconfigured.


Note:  These procedures ONLY to ASR replication.  If LDAP replication is being used then the remtool command line option -pchgmaster should be used instead.
