Windows SBS 2011 Missing Attributes tab in Active Directory

We just Migrating a SBS 2003 server to a SBS 2011 server and we are missing the Attributes tab when you click properties on a User Object. Does anyone know how to get this to show up?

Thanks

Have clicked Advanced Features. It does show some advanced features but for some odd reason the Attribute Tab is missing in ADUC. On an almost identical SBS 2011 server it works fine. Was hoping maybe reg hack or something to get it to show.

Might this be a migrated server from SBS/Server 2003?

Sorry. I'm a little slow....and dyslexic  :-)  
As I recall this is a known issue because of the schema changes or domain functional level.
I'll see if I can locate the fix

This should help,  using ADSIedit to resolve as per instructions:

I am also curious as to what the domain functional level is on the migrated server.  I am wondering if not 2008 or 2008 R2, if raising would also resolve.  Note:  do not do so if still running older domain controllers in the domain.
