Ivan is correct, update and reseed are the same thing. you can run various commands for different occasions though. See below links for good articles on both occasions.

If you have a failed content index I would seed on the index:

If you have a failed or unhealthy Database Copy in a DAG you would then seed the DB copy:

Hi,

Update and Reseed are the same thing. You do it in standard situations like DB corruption, when copy status is in failed, after offline defragmentation or such things.

Hi,

I think that Exchange communicate with all DC, except if you did not configure StaticDomainController.

To check what is configured use command: Get-ExchangeServer | fl
Look at parameter CurrentDomainControler, StaticDomainController and OriginatingServer

Regarda,
Ivan.
