AD Schema Update

Unanswered Question

In a Unity 5.1 installation with Exchange 2003 w/failover environment I have been told that I do not need to do an AD Schem update when an Exchange 2007 mailstore come online, just run the permissions wizard. Can anyone confirm that?

Thanks in advance! All replies rated

The schema update is for the Unity software. When you install Exchange it goes through and does its own thing to the directory with domain prep and forest prep. If it's been run once already, you shouldn't need to run it again. Someone may want to back me up on this one.

just to add some info, the AD schema only adds properties, previous properties other versions applied remain and is still backwards compatible



if this helps, please rate

ok. So am I hearing that since we are not upgrading Unity and are just bringing on an Exchange 2007 mailstore that we don't need to run it?

If you are upgrading Exchange you might need to do the exchange schema but no the Unity only needs the Unity schema updates when you upgrade Unity.
