Adding 2008 DC to 2003 domain....I have run ADPREP /FORESTPREP on Schema master DC. I just realized we have another DC being built for a branch office that is offline for a few days. What issues will I see if the other 2003 DC's have all been update to latest schema for 2k8 when I bring this DC online? Will I need to run forestprep again? Also, I have not moved forward with ADPREP /DOMAINPREP due to this issue. Should I run domainprep at this point or will there be issues when bringing that offline dc online?

No, Schema Changes are replicated from the Schema Master. It should simply catch up with no action on your part (other than turning it on).

Almost the same applies for DomainPrep, it'll catch up and get the changes as soon as it's able.
