When I try to create a new user in active directory I recive de message error
"Windows Cannot create the objet because the directory service was unable to
allocate a relative identifier"

In the past I had 2 domain servers, and I put offline the master domain
server.

Hello Fabian,

Thats the reason, the RID pool of the existing is empty, hopefully the other
one is not longer offline then 60 days?

Best regards

It sounds like you don't have a RID master, the DC that allocates pools of
Relative ID's to the other DC's. When you demote a DC you must first
transfer any of the FSMO roles held by that DC to other DC's. If it's too
late for that you must seize the roles on other DC's.

Research FSMO (Flexible Single Master Operations) roles. These are:
1. Schema Master (one per forest)
2. Domain Naming Master (one per forest)
3. PDC Emulator (one per domain)
4. RID Master (one per domain)
5. Infrastructure Master (one per domain)

If you can, bring make the DC you took offline. If you want to retire it
find out which FSMO roles it has and transfer them elsewhere.
