Hi everyone,

I am looking to add a 2008 DC to my 2003 domain.  I'm using this guide:

The only thing I'm not sure about is, other than running adprep /forestprep, /domainprep and /domainprep /gpprep, is there anything I need to do to the existing 2003 DCs?  I have about 8 DCs total in a few different locations and I have no plan to upgrade or decommission any of them at this time.
