Hi,
I was told to upgrade Windows 2003 member server to Windows 2008 member server in an existing Domain. There are many domain controllers in this domain, by the way.

My question is "shall I run adprep/forestprep and adproep/domainprep before running windows 2008 setup"?

Thanks a lot!

If the server is just a member server and not going to be running active directory you do not need to do any domain prep or forest prep.

Also ADprep would only need to be run once before you put the first 2008 domain controller in place. This is not a repeated task.
