How to change ldp.exe attribute

How to I modify the following attribute using ldp.exe?

1> forestFunctionality: 0=(DS_BEHAVIOR_WIN2000)


I want to change it from 0 to 2 but I am having trouble. I keep getting an "unwilling to modify" message. Not sure if what I am entering into the modify box is correct or if there is something else going on.

I have already raised the level in Active Directory Domains and Trusts as described in the article, and all DC's show 2003 mode and say they are at the highest level. According the LDAP though the forest level is at 2000. I need to change this in order for my exchange install to continue.

Have tried ADPrep /forestprep and /domainprep both say that the operation has already been completed.

To run adprep /forestprep you need to be a member of Enterprise Admins and this action should be performed on Schema Master role holder. To check which server holds this role run on DC in command-line

netdom query fsmo

and locate Schema Master server name. Then run adprep /forestprep on it (but first you have to be an Enterprise Admin)

adprep /domainprep should be performed on Infrastructure Master (the same command as for Schema Master will identify server with that role) and Domain Admins is enough for that (probably this action has been finished successfully)

I am a member of the Enterprise Admin group. When I run ADPrep /forestprepon the schema master it says that it Forest-wide info has already been updated and it does not rerun.  Same with /domainprep on the Infrastructure Master

OK now I feel dumb!  I did only do it for the domain. Raising it from the correct location worked and now the FFL has been raised.
Thank you.
