Server 2003 to SBS 2011 migration issues

I am in the process of migration from Server 2003 Standard with Exchange to SBS 2011 with Exchange 2010.

I got 2 issues which may be related to each other:

1- When running the SBS 2011 Migration Preparation Tool, it does not say anything about 'configure Exchange to support migration' like the screenshots would suggest.

2-  When running Exchange Best Practices Analyzer - 2007 Readiness check. The one result I get is 'Active Directory schema upgrade required'.

Is this related or not? Should I do anything to rectify this, or am I ready to go ahead with the migration?

Have you tried running the Exchange 2010 Pre-Deployment Analyzer?

Not yet. But would this effect the Domain joining?

I just ran it. The results are the same as with the 'Exchange 2007 Readines check'.

"Active Directory Schema upgrade required"

I am not sure what to do about this because I thought that running the 'sourcetool' takes care of updating the AD schema.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Can I go ahead with my migration in the meantime? or should we first sort this out?

I went ahead with the migration despite the message because I read on a post that the upgrade happens during the DC install on the new SBS box. I worked!!

So for all you guys out there: You can ignore the message about upgrading AD Schema.
