Re running /PrepareAD and /PrepareDomain after RU13 update on Exchange 2013 ?
Posted on 2014-10-16
Ok, I am experiencing a permissions issue in exchange 2013 where I am getting an access denied error on certain daily operations. The advise I am getting is to put the install DVD in and run the setup again with the /PrepareAD switch followed by the /PrepareDomain switch to make sure that all the permissions are set correctly in the domain. Sounds like sound advise but here is my question:
During the RU13 install I was required to run those same Active Directory preparation commands so I assume that it had something different to add than the original. So do I run them from the original install media and then again from the RU update or will the RU13 update files do the same thing? I would think that the RU would be cumulative and do the trick but I cant find any information on this. Any advise would be appreciated!
