What are you trying to do? This basically adds the correct information to AD for the domain/forest/schema in order to get exchange upgraded and functioning properly. if you are going from 2003 to 2007 or 2010 it will run this automatically if you don't do it manually.

transition from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010

i needed to know specific functions of these switches.

i told somebody this answer with respect to setup/AD-

RUS and email address to exist correctly  and make universal security group to function properly

also these switches are giving permission to have necessary permission to send email in an exchange organization when transitioning from previous exchange like 2003 to 2010

is my above answer to some extent correct

is there any word like mdb.edb?
