Adprep is a utility that you run to prepare an existing Active Directory (AD) environment for the first DC that runs a newer OS, such as Server 2008 R2. Run adprep /domainprep on each domain's infrastructure master. If you plan to install a read-only DC (RODC -- new in Server 2008), then you also need to run adprep /rodcprep for every domain that will have an RODC.
