This command runs nightly. I ran it manually and confirmed no issues.

I ran this and it said "re-index OK" (or similar).

The only weird thing here was that if I ran the command again, it had the same output.

Roughly -- the big difference here is that our old version was a custom compiled piece of junk, so we spun up a new server (with the sernet packages) and let the old servers replicate to the new one, instead of upgrading in place.
