Im trying to install Lync 2010 RC to test it out. But during the first step it goes wrong. Im trying to prepare the schema but then when running the wizard it gives me error an say this:
"The specified forest functional level is invalid. "Lync Server" requires forests running in Windows 2003 mode or higher."
The only thing here is that I'm running my AD with the level of 2008 so this is not correct. I have tried to run this both on the domain controller and on the lync server without success. See attached screen shot for more information.

Anybody have any idea on how to get around this?
