You should be able to change the role to Stand Alone server and then reboot. Then make sure DNS is running and healthy on the Mac server and that it uses itself as DNS, then Change the OD role to OD master and make it the same name as before. Another note is not to name the domain .local, instead use something like .lcl or .lan, this is another Appleism.

Also, if this is a Mac Pro or Xserve with two NICS, be sure that they are either bonded with one IP or you only use one NIC. The server should not have two IPs. OD will break for sure.

Also be sure to export users and groups in WM before you start to save you time after you create the new OD. Passwords will need to be reset after import.

Be sure to archive the OD DB after you finish for safe keeping.

Good Luck.
