Hello.

Last year, we moved from a windows 2000 AD to windows 2008, but never raised the domain functional level from 2000 native.

We have since upgraded our 2 windows 2008 DC's to R2.  I would like to raise the functional level to 2008 R2.  Lest year we ran the adprep's to get the domain ready for the 2008 DC's.  Do I need to do that again in order to prep the domain for raising functional level to R2?

thank you!

Nope you should be able to raise the domain without issues if you only have 2008 Server R2 as Domain Controllers.
