I am attempting to transfer the FSMO roles from the first DC in a windows 2003 domain to a different DC so I can make the first DC an application server.

Following MS article 324801 I was able to transfer all roles but the schema role. When I attempt to change the role the change button is greyed out. What am I missing here?

Both DC's are running win 2003. The domain functional level is 2000.
