I'm following a technet document from MS to migrate our SBS2003 settings to a new SBS2003 server.
So far so good, I migrated AD, DNS and some other features now the next step is to continue the installation of SBS2003, when I do this the wizard starts does some checks and is supposed to give some warnings at the Setup Requirements screen.

The problem now is that besids the warnings I get an error that my built-in administrator acocunt is not a member of the Domain Admins, Schema Admins and Enterprise Admins groups.

I deleted the profile on the server, rebooted the server, deleted and added the account to the user groups but nothing works.

Can I manually check or force the user to be a member of these user groups or can I solve this issue in another way?

And yes I'm logged in with the correct account :-)
