Comments
 
In my case I was migrating SBS 2003 to a new SBS 2003 server. I found out that you need to allow a delay of about 15 minutes between putting DNS on the new server and trying to migrate the Active Directory Schema master role.
When I was trying to swap schema master, the operation failed although other roles came across ok. To fix this set the schema master to get its time from the DC you are trying to swap the schema master role to. Alternatively, setting up proper SMTP time from a public NTP source for your domain should also do it.
