I have to prep my AD for our upcoming 2013 exchange implementation.

I have downloaded the latest ISO for 2013 and the SP3 cumulative update for 2013.

Which do I run the setup.exe /prepare XXXX syntax from? The iso or the update?

The update should contain everything that is included on the ISO of Exchange 2013, if I am remembering correctly, so running it from the Update media should be fine.

Thank,

But is there a separate schema update that needs to be done to install the sp3 cu update?

I believe so. However, if you run adprep using the version included in the update, it will include all schema updates necessary to install the CU.

and that will prep for the cu3 schema update?
