Finally moving away from Windows 2003 domain to Windows 2008.  I ave two 2008 r2 DCs and one remaining 2003 SP2 DC.  The '03 server is still the Ops master.  When I try to move the Ops master to the desired '08 server it is not avail via the GUID.
The '03 server is not a DNS server.  Both new DCs in '08 are DNS servers.

What step am I missing to move the Ops master from this '03 server?

Note: Site has another server running Exchange 2003 SP2 on another server.  This will be transitioned to Exchange 2010 in the next 2 weeks.

Health was good on both. Thanks for the link. Reading it pointed out that I was initiating it from the old server, not the new one.
