Getting prepped to do a SBS 2003 to SBS 2011 migration and getting an error when running the migration prep tool. The tool cannot upgrade the schema. In looking at the eventvwr on the SBS server there is an error:

This server is the owner of the following FSMO role, but does not consider it valid.

This is the only DC and the DNS of this server points back to itself. How can I correct this so I can move forward with my SBS 2011 migration?
