Adding a new exchange 2007 server

We had Exchange 2007SP1 on Server 2003 with mailbox role (Exch1), and same configure with Hub and CAS role (Exch2).
I’m installing a new Exchange 2007 SP3 on 2008 R2 SP1 with mail box role (Exch3). Do I need to run setup /PrepareSchema or setup /PrepareAD? In what circumstances do I need to run those commands? Or just install Exchange? Will the new mailbox server use current Hub and CAS to send and receive emails? Thanks in advance.

If joining an existing Exchange 2007 Org - then you should not need these commands.
2008R2 introduces some schema changes itself when installed.

The new install will be aware of the HUB and CAS roles.
