I have been using Louis' repo for a long time and have never had any

A good practice you can do is:

- configure a new machine
- join this new machine to the existing AD
- test everything
- transfer the FSMO roles to the new machine

After that you can update the old ones and if any errors occur you have the
new machine intact.
