Hi All,

I'm about to deploy 2x additional Exchange Server 2013 SP1 + CU15 Mailbox server role to the existing Exchange server in AD domains with the following role and version like:

			    ServerRole            Edition  AdminDisplayVersion
			    ----------            -------  -------------------
PRODMBXCAS01-VM Mailbox, ClientAccess Standard Version 15.0 (Build 1130.7)
PRODMBXCAS02-VM Mailbox, ClientAccess Standard Version 15.0 (Build 847.32)
PRODMBX03-VM Mailbox               Standard Version 15.0 (Build 847.32)

So my question is, do I need to worry for any outage or any caveats that is stopping me doing this deployment ?
Any outage required or interruptions to the mailflow ?
If I configure DAG is there any outage to the above email flow ?

Do I need to install the same level of Exchange Service pack or Cumulative update rather than installing the latest CU15 on the new server ?

Thanks in advance.
