I currently have a domain that is 2003 native with 4 domain controllers. All except one domain controller is 2008 R2.

I also have OCS 2007 installed on 2008R2. The forest prep for OCS was done after the forest prep for 2008.

That being said, once I replace the last 2003 server with 2008R2 and make the domain 2008 native, will I still have to rerun the OCS forest prep to make sure OCS does not break?

The article in question is....

I just want to know if they are talking about the forest prep or the domain actually already being 2008 native or not.

OCS may still work but I'm fairly certain you will have to run the OCS forest prep after you do the actual upgrade to 2008.  Cause even though the forest was prepped, the roles haven't actually changed yet.  I would upgrade to 2008, run OCS prep and go from there.

If you upgrade to Server 2008 R2 and then extend the Schema you will need to rerun only the Forest Prep step for OCS: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/982020
