Running forestprep and domainprep

Is there a way to tell when I've allowed forestprep enough time to finish so it's safe to run domainprep?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Not really. After forestprep has finished its installation process I usually leave it at least an hour before running domainprep. However it depends on how large your site is, how many domain controllers and whether you have replication problems.

I have 8 domain controllers.  When I look at the directory service log on each I have a bunch of 1153 errors.  Are they anything to be concerned about before running domainprep?
