ADPREP Question

Last Modified: 2012-05-07
I need to run adprep.exe /forestprep and want to know if there are any negative effects that can be cause by this.

I am following instructions in regard to Installing the DFS Management Snap-in and DFS Replication Service. I am a little worried about running adprep as I have never ran it before. In addition, I believe we might be having replication problems on one of our Domain Controllers. I am worried that running adprep might screw something up.

Any suggestions or anything to watch out for?
