Change schema master role

I had a problem to change schema master role DC with w2k3 Enterprise Edition through GUI interface (MMC). So it should be done through (somebody has same problem with server 2008) :

"There are a few ways to achieve this - I would use the NTDSUTIL tool.

  • From the 2008 DC, run ntdsutil from a command prompt
  • type ROLES and then enter
  • type CO and then enter
  • type CO TO SERVER and then enter
  • type Q and then enter
  • type TRANS SC MA and then enter
  • you will be prompted with a GUI box whether you want to transfer the schema FSMO to that DC, click Yes
  • Q and then enter
  • Q and then enter"

From Stuard Hudman response in a forum.
