Hello to all!

I have domain with one 2003 DC and one 2008 DC. All FSMO roles are on 2008 DC and 2008 DC is a GC server. I want to dcpromo out 2003 DC but when the procedure comes to part when it contact other DC (2008), i got error message that says that I don't have Enterprise admin rights. I tried to dcpromo out this 2003 DC with "Administrator" and my admin account and both are Domain admin accounts and both accounts are in the "Enterprise admins" group.
Please help!
