The Schema is not extended for the licensing service - Installation issue SBS 2008

After a 20 hour battle with an old server and another 10 hours fighting with Windows SBS 2008 migration from SBS 2003 I have finally gotten SBS 2008 up and running. There are several Installation Issues, possibly related to this one thing....

The Installation issue in question is:

"The Schema is not extended for the Licensing service"

If you click How do I fix this it tells you do  this:

Problem   The schema extensions that are required for the Licensing service are not installed.

Features affected   This causes your server to shut down.

Problem   You must manually extend the schema for the Licensing service.

 Note  
 You must be a network administrator to complete this procedure.
 
 To manually extend the schema for the Licensing service

Click Start, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

Type cd %Programfiles%\Windows Small Business Server\Bin.

Type ldifde -i -k -f LicenseADExtensions.ldf  -c "<SchemaContainerDN>" #schemaNamingContext.

 Note  
 If you still cannot extend the schema for the Licensing service, contact Microsoft Product Support.
 
When I run that command I get this:

C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Bin>ldifde -i -k -f LicenseADExte
nsions.ldf  -c "<SchemaContainerDN>" #schemaNamingContext
Connecting to "GCCSBS.gracearlington.local"

I have Googled and Googled and have not found a solution. 500 points to whoever can help me.

I am going to try to remove this question.. I found a lot of overwhelming evidence that I need to restore system state on old server and start over again. There is apparently no fix for the issue.

Hi,

Are running the SBS 2008 on Hyper V? If yes, then refer this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956359

One more thing have you run the ldifde command from the elevated command prompt.

Hope this helps,
Shree
