Several months ago I did a move of an SBS server to new hardware.  I folled the instructions step by step and was able to build my new SBS server and move my exchange stuff over without a hitch.  That server was later moved to a data center and I did all the necessary stuff to have a second domain controler take over the SBS server's function in our office.  Or so I thought...  Now I'm trying to install Exchange 2007 on a new server and I'm getting an error telling me that the Schema Master could not be found.  So...  I need to know how to make an existing server become the chema Master without the original Schema Master being available so I can then install Exchange 2007 properly.
