Applying SP3 Roll Up Update 11 on Exchange Server CCR mailbox server

Hi People,

in the steps defined http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb885047.aspx, why there is no command to suspend the replication and the Stop-ClusteredMailboxServer cmdlet to stop the clustered mailbox server ?

Is that really necessary ?

You can use StartDAGmaintainence powershell script provided by MS to put your mailbox server in maintenance mode
The script is located in program files\v14\scripts (Exchange install Directory) folder
The script will suspend passive database copies, switchover active database copies to another DAG member, transfer PAM, cluster owner and also block auto activation of mailbox dataabases

Once your operation completed, after reboot, you can run stop DAGMaintenance powershell script to take mailbox server online
and then manually move mailbox databases

Sorry, you are running Exchange 2007 SP3
I have overlooked that
Please ignore my earlier comment

no worries Mahesh, but that sounds cool, for Exchange Server 2010 or 2013, we can just execute one script to do all of the prerequisite for us :-)
