Re-Promote Clustered Root Management Server

Scenario: The clustered Root Management Server goes down you need to promote another Management Server in the Management Group to become the Root Management Server and when the cluster comes back online you can re-promote the cluster.

This was a disaster recovery scenario that was broken in OpsMgr 2007 RTM that we are fixing 30days post Service Pack 1. I have attached a copy of the promotion tool where we have fixed this issue and wanted you all to try it out and let us know if this works in your environment as well.

 This tool is not offically supported by the OpsMgr 2007 team or PSS and is for lab testing purposes only. Do not try this on production servers either.
