Hi,

You need to add a registry entry on the server, which is as follows:

In HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\Parameters, create the following value:
Value name: Allow System Only Change
Data type: REG_DWORD
Value data: 1
Then close the registry and now you should be able to modify through ADSIEDIT.

Regards,
Sekhar

This method I found on the Internet, regarding yur problem.
Hope this helps.


Login as a member of Schema Admins (preferably on the Schema Master FSMO)

Launch LDP.EXE

Connect to the Schema Master FSMO using LDP.EXE

Bind to the Schema Master using an account with Schema Admin permissions.

From the Browse menu, choose Modify

In the Modify dialog box, leave the DN field blank, and type schemaUpgradeInProgress in the Attribute field. In the Value field, enter the number 1. Click the Enter button, then click the Run button.

Close the Modify dialog box.

Launch ADSIEDIT.MSC and modify the mAPIID values for the necessary attributes. (You may need to wait for the Active Directory to replicate.)

Run LDP again, and change the value of schemaUpgradeInProgress from 1 to 0.

From the Active Directory Schema console, right click on the console and choose "Reload the Schema"

Hi,
Sorry, there was a typo omit. The setting should be changed on your DC most preferably on your schema master.
