Can't raise functional level of DC

By ron ·
I have a Server with 2003 Ent sp2. I have to rename the domain but need to raise it's functional level to 2003.

When I try and raise level of the Forest, I get: "The functional level cannot be raised, the directory is busy"

When I try to raise the domain, I get the same message.

I have rebooted the system and tried this with no clients logged on.

Any ideas?

1.) Log in as Administrator
2.) In the Administrative Tools window, go to Active Directory Sites and Services,
3.) Expand Sites, expand Default-First-Site-Name, expand Servers, expand DC's, and then click NTDS Settings on each one of them.
4.) In the details pane, right-click the connection object listed, click Replicate Now, and then click OK.

This happened to me as well but this let me raise my forests functional level. Hope this helps.
