do you have to reboot your WIN2K server after running adprep \forestprep & \Domainprep

The question title tells it all...

Just want to know if I can run this without disrupting current Production environment...

TIA

If this is the Exchange prep then no you don't have to reboot - just wait at least 30 minutes between doing each one for the updates to propagate to all domain controllers.

excellent. only one addition.

No Exchange. Domino on another server,

There is only one domain controller, the other is a domino server I am replacing (also)

The 2003 box is to replace the 2000 box, then rebuild 2000 to meet 2003 specs... later..

Very nice gentlemen...
