May need to reboot a server in a DFSR configuration: Useful things to know?

Two Windows Server2008 R2 file servers are set up for DFSR. No namespace configured.

I may need to reboot one as part of an unrelated install, no problems with DFS.

Are there any best practices to follow when doing this?
Any potential issues which could come up from rebooting one?

The main thing I'm concerned with is the database becoming corrupted somehow and having to do a initialization of the entire DB. Painful to do.
