Promoting ADC to PDC

By apodartho ·
In my office (small network of 40 nodes)we have the Primary Domain Controller , a Server 2003 R2 SP2 and an Additional Domain Controller, another Server 2003 R2 SP2. I made this ADC just using DCPROMO command, nothing else I have done (like making the ADC a Global Catalog or transfering FSMO roles etc.). Actually I don't have clear knowledge about ADC.
Now the situation is the PDC is getting some Hard Disc errors (bad block) and I have to do some maintenance in it. GPMC (Group Policy Management Console)is also installed in this PDC.
Some advices or steps are highly appreciated about how I can transefer the ADC as PDC along with Group Policies. If the PDC crashes suddenly what should be my steps.
Another thing if I transfer the 5 FSMO roles now, is it feasible to be 2 role holder DC online in a network.
I am needing advices, please help me out.
