Adding first 2008 Standard DC & gpprep

I am adding my first Windows 2008 server to my Windows 2003 environment.  Domain and forest prep went great.  A little nervous about the gpprep.  We don't rely too heavily on our gp's here.  But is there a chance it is going to break them, cause errors for the users, etc.  I just want to find out what I am in for and what I need to be looking out for.

Thanks, Kristin

To be honest I don't even recall having to run gpprep and if I did, it was probably done all in one shot back to back with forestprep and domainprep, so it must have not been a big deal, but that was just my experience, my 2c.

I don't recall running gpprep either.  I was pretty concerned at the time, but everything went incredibly smoothly.  We're now running all 2008 domain controllers and it's fine.  I've not noticed any issues with GP's.

gprep is not required if you ran during migration to Windows 2003 server if your first Domain Controller was a 2003 server it is not required.

If you already ran the /gpprep parameter for Windows Server 2003, you do not have to run it again for Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
