Exchange 2003 RUS Domain Controller Designation Change

After changing the Windows Domain Controller on an existing Exchange 2003 RUS instance for a particular AD domain, which of the following actions should be taken - Update Now or Rebuild?  
1 Solution

You don't need to do either, since they won't have any effect. Changing the DC which is used for generating the RUS will only take effect when data is changed in Exchange and the RUS communicates with Active Directory to perform an update / rebuild. Since no data will change, and the AD data should be the same no matter which DC you point the RUS to, doing a rebuild will have no effect whatsoever.
