I am migrating from 2003 sbs to 2012. I added a server 2008 DC, did all the Forest and Domain preps. When I tried to add the 2012 as a new DC. I get an error saying that the domain function level is windows 2000. I verfifed on the 2003 SBS that the domain level is indeed 2003.. Any one have an Idea?

I have NEVER seen that error be wrong. Don't confuse domain functional level and forest functional level. Those are two different things. Both must be at 2003.
