I need to upgrade a DC on server 2003 SP2 to r2

- I read that I need to run adprep from the server 2003 r2 disk

- I have another server that is running Server 2008 R2 stardard
- I already ran adprep /forestprep  and //domainprep on the server 2003 SP2

- Do I still have to run the ADPREP for server 2003 R2?

If you've already preped for 2008, then you should not need to for 2003 R2.

But, if you did, you would be told and the DCPROMO would fail.
