How to prepare other DCs when doing an Active Directory Authoritative Restore

The File Replication Service (FRS) engine was used when the backup was created. Stop the replication engine on other Active Directory domain controllers in the domain and configure them for non-authoritative recovery before proceeding. Do you want to continue?
I just clicked yes and continued. I have done it several times over the years with no apparent problems, but I'm getting nervous.
