Join 2003 R2 Server to 2003 Active Directory Domain

We're getting the incompatible message when trying to join AD on a new Server 2003 R2 to the existing domain with Server 2003 SP1.  I understand I have to run the new adprep on disk 2 of the R2 set but not where to run it.

Is the R2 ad prep run on the R2 computer, the existing Server 2003 sp1, or both?

ADPREP prepares Active Directory - there would be nothing for it to prepare if run on the R2 box.  

You should be running this on your existing DC and give a little time for the changes to replicate to other DCs
