Forest Prep - Expanded vs. Consolidated RRS feed

  • Question

  • Client had bad info and ran Forest Prep for Expanded deployment before I arrived.  I installed 2 FE servers in consolidated config, the deployment appropriate to their environment and needs.  All seems well, have real-world tested IM conferencing and presence with Communicator client (not ip voice or video, although they will want this after their Msft hosted LM agreement expires; no pbx integration desired).  They just told me today that the Forest prep was run for expanded deployment...  Should I re-run the Forest prep?  Any idea what the implications are? 


    Enterprise Edition, Win2k3 R2 Ent SP2, SQL 2005 SP2.

  • There should be no difference in the Forest Prep for expanded or consolidated configurations;-)

    Forest Prep just creates the needed Global Settings and Objects and the Universal Groups for delegation purposes....
