"change schema master" window shows the old server in both the "current" and the "change to" fields.

I need to upgrade a 1 server NT Domain to a new 1 server 2003 AD Domain. I upgraded the NT server to Windows 2003 (w/out R2) and the new server is Windows 2003 R2. The upgrade of the NT server went fine. I realized I had to run the adprep.exe from the R2 CD on the 2003 Server w/out R2. That went fine too.
I then ran dcpromo on the new server, and that went well too.
I now need to transfer the FSMO roles to he 2003 R2 server. I registered schmmgmt.dll and added the snap-in, but when I go to Operation Master to transfer the Schema Master to the new 2003 R2 server, the "change schema master" window shows the old server in both the "current" and the "change to" fields. Meaning, I can't change the Schema Master to the new server.
Anyone know why? Thanks!
