New 2008 R2 DC

I installed a new 2008 r 2 DC in my 2003 domain. while moving the fsmo roles to the 2008 server, i got the message that the Schema Master should not be on a GC. I am adding one more 2008 DC, should i not make it a GC and move the Schema Master to it?

Not sure why you received that message.  It is fine for the schema master to be on a GC.  In fact try to make every DC a GC see bullet one   http://adisfun.blogspot.com/2009/04/lessons-learned-from-eric-fleischman.html

There can be issues in multi domain environments with the GC and the infrastructure master being on the same box if all DCs are not GCs.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/223346

Thanks
