this command should work:

Just to be sure: is your s4 version recent enough (I mean at maximum 
some months old)?

Otherwise you could just try to perform the raise manually. This means 
with an adequate LDAP tool you have to:

- Under <base DN> set "msDS-Behavior-Version" to 3
- Under CN=<short domainname>, CN=Partitions, CN=Configuration, <base 
DN> set "msDS-Behavior-Version" to 3
