adprep commnads from network share?

Scenario:

Dell PE 2850, W2K3, DC, Exchange Server, DNS, DHCP, all on one box.

I am in the process of separating this into 2 W2K8 R2 boxes (1 DC , 1 EX) and getting rid of the 2850.

The 2850 doesn’t have a DVD player, only a CD player, hence it cannot read a DVD so i won't be able to run the adprep commands from there.

My question is this; can the following commands:

adprep /forestprep
adprep /domainprep
adprep /domainprep /gprep
adprep /rodcprep

be run from a network share instead of from the DVD?

thanks

Yes.  There is no reason that these commands cannot be run from a network share.  Just be sure to copy the whole folder.

I've done it from both the DVD and the files copied to a share. They are completely equivalent.
