Personally if there is no users on the system, I would deploy CU3. I don't see the point in going live with an old product. Furthermore, as soon as the next CU comes out you will have to upgrade as Microsoft only support the current one, plus the previous one.

Symantec Backup 2012 should have Service Pack 3 to support Exchange 2013 and ESXi 5.5

please refer to the article below:

Exchange 2013 is still going through a lot of changes and bug fixes, it is best to go to the latest which is CU3. SP1 will be out shortly as well (they have not specified a date yet) so it would be recommened to go with CU3 as of right now and possibly SP1 when it is released.

Exchange 2013 SP1 - http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2013/11/20/exchange-server-2013-service-pack-1-coming-in-early-2014.aspx

As stated already Symantec is also supported for Exchange 2013

This compatible with FFL/DFL 2003 you will be fine to do the schema update. See below link for reference.
