Multiple domain controllers running Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server have been detected in your domain.  Migration Gone Bad

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
Our SBS 2003 has bene running fine but just under two weeks ago we tried to migrate to SBS 2008.  Through the migration process we ran into a snag and had to put it on hold until we figure out the problem.  Since then our SBS 2008 has been removed from the network but we are still receiving the message in the picture.  I know its from the migration process (and in theory we have 21 days to rectify it).  My question is, do we have to do a restore from two weeks ago (our last backup before the we tried migrating) or can we just transfer FSMO roles using this kb article http://support.microsoft.com/?id=255690  ? The message appears once a day.  I am aware that once the 21 day time limit is up our server will start shutting down, which of course we arer trying to avoid.  Thanks for your time and help Warning Message
