Hello Experts. Quick question, will exchange 2013 from cu15 to cu19 upgarde fail if i did not extend the schema, prepare AD, and domain. I ask because i did run the commands and all completed successfully, but the schema version has not updated in ADSI edit, so i'm worried it may not have completed successfully.

It will be a good test if CU 19 upgrade fails, as that will let me know of any replication issues. This is for my test env. I ran repadmin with /replsummary, /queue, and /showrepl, and i saw no errors.

I did find an article that stated the schema version does not change with cu19, it remains the same as before, so how can i check if it updated.

Please let me know. Thanks in advance

there is nothing to do manually
just install the CU19 update
doing in a test environment first is good, though it looks like your environment is good and the update should be straight-forward
CU19 fixes an issue when exchange 2016 servers are also present so not a huge update

how can i check if it updated.

open the management console and look at the build number; should be 14.3.382

No changes have been made to the Active Directory schema in Exchange 2013 from CU8 onwards
U already on CU15, so there won't be any change

you simply need to ensure that whatever rollup you installed, it also updated exchange version up to the mark and leave it.
Run below command from EMS:
Get-ExchangeServer | Format-List Name, Edition, AdminDisplayVersion

Open in new window

It should showcase 15.00.1365.001
