Anaconda 4.6.1 Installed - Will the Intel Distribution for Python cause issues?

I already have Anaconda 4.6.1 installed.  Will installing the "Installing Intel® Distribution for Python* and Intel® Performance Libraries with Anaconda" cause any issues with my existing install or will it be ok since the instructions state that a new environment is being created?

Should I use the "conda config --add channels intel" command if I want to use my already installed Anaconda 4.6.1?

It shouldn't be a problem.  The accelerated packages pass all the package tests and are compatible with existing code.  Adding the channel just means it prefers the accelerated packages and will default to conda-forge or defaults if it does not find a match for packages.
