We are required to perform Perform AD Preparations for Exchange 365, and need to prepare schema, AD etc for Ex2010:
Common practice for schema preparations is to Disable AD replication to / from Schema master (and disable network connection)..
If we run the Ex2010 setup /PrepareAD, this action will perform all the operations /ps, /p, /pd -i.e. prepare schema, AD, and domain.
In this situation is it still appropriate to disable replication on shema master?
(NB. Currently, Schema master (2008R2 STD) holds all other FSMO roles as well. Domain / Forest functional level is windows 2003)
