I have an exchange 2007 environment and will be prepping it for exchange 2013.

I will be running /preparead /alldomains /prepare schema from the exchange 2013 CU SP3 update itself.

The one thing I cannot find it what schema version numbers should I be at once this is completed. I search and cannot find the numbers.

Any thoughts.

I saw that but I don't see the version number for when you prep from the sp3 update.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

forestprep is for adprep when installing a newer version of windows to be used as a domain controller; not for exchange installations and updates

if you look at the second link i posted (Prepare Active Directory and Domains) you will see the other switches you mentioned
