Hey ITMaster,

Here is a great article from Paul Cunningham (Exchange MVP) on how to properly put DAGs into maintenance mode to do the updates.

http://exchangeserverpro.com/how-to-install-updates-on-exchange-server-2010-database-availability-groups/

He lists the manual procedure and also the procedure with the Microsoft DAG maintenance scripts.

I would always prefer to upgrade Passive node first and then active node.  Process is same .

Steps:

Reboot servers to clear any updates that have applied.
Prepare Schema and Active Directory.
Place server in Maintenance Mode.
Run the Exchange Setup.
Take server out of maintenance mode.
Active Directory Preparation:

From an elevated prompt you can run the following commands:
Setup.exe /PrepareSchema /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms
Setup.exe /PrepareAD /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms
Start Maintenance Mode:

(**You need to open up the Exchange Management Shell as Administrator or point 3 will give you a permission error**)

Open up an elevated Exchange Management Shell and run the 4 commands, let each one complete before doing the next one:

Set-MailboxServer <Server Name> -DatabaseCopyActivationDisabledAndMoveNow $True
Set-ServerComponentState –Identity <Server Name> –Component HubTransport –State Draining –Requester Maintenance
Suspend-ClusterNode –Name <Server Name>
Set-MailboxServer –Identity <Server Name>–DatabaseCopyAutoActivationPolicy Blocked

Start Exchange 2013 CU6 Upgrade:

Open up the Exchange CU6 file you downloaded and extracted and double click the Setup file.

Please refer below MS article for more details.
