Upgrading to Exchange 2013 CU13

I am looking to upgrade my Exchange 2013 (has no CUs on it currently) to CU13. I see that there are potentially a few preparation commands  that need to be ran on my AD/DC. Are these necessary to be ran or if I run the setup.exe for the CU13 release will that be included automatically? I remember when I did a CU update for 2007 it was included and didn't have to be ran separately in the Command prompt.

Also, any known issue that I may come across that you guys have encountered?

If the logged user you will be running setup.exe with is a member of schema and enterprise admins, and the Exchange server has the RSAT-ADDS feature installed, there isn't anything you need to run specifically from a DC.

Just FYI CU14 is already out for Exchange 2013.  What I always do is download the update, unzip it, then run the .exe file from an elevated command prompt.  Old habits die hard.
