Hi All,

  I have two Exchange 2010 servers. Exch 1 has all the roles (  CAS, MBX, HUB ) , Exch 2 has UM only, I have deployed Exchange Service pack 3  with RU 1 since RU 2 was failing two times to install.

Can I install Exchange 2013 servers now since SP3 is installed, my Plan is two Exchange 2013 with MBX, CAS one in site 1 and one in site 2 and configure DAG between them, any advise pls

SP3 is the requirement here, so as long as both servers are at SP3 then you can install Exchange 2013. Make sure that you use CU2 v2 download to do so.

Hi Simon
Do you mean that after 2013 requires cu 2 v2 after the installation?

No - all cumulative updates are the full product. Therefore you can download CU2 v2 and use that to do the new installation.
