One of my domain controllers in server 2003 needs to get upgraded to 2012.
Once upgraded it still should be a domain controller but the domain/forest are still going
to be at the server 2003 functional level (for the moment).
My question is, since the 2012 DC is still going to be part of a 2003 domain/forest, is it necessary to run forestprep/domainprep?
