How much time to wait after ADPREP to upgrade server
Posted on 2005-03-21
I have 4 DC's in one domain all running 2000 server. I'd like to prepare for them to be upgraded to 2003 server.
1- Can I run the adprep /forestprep and adprep /domainprep and then wait a few days before actually upgrading the servers to 20003? If so, are there any issues with doing this?
2-Two of the DC's are in remote offices, will there be any issues if I upgrade the 2 local one's and leave the the other two running 2000 server for the time being?
3- How long does the adprep process take and does it require rebooting (or in other words- do I need to do this off-hours or on a weekend)?
