Re: Active directory schema update query

Hi -

1. No you do not need to update the schema again for the 3X replacement server.

2. Yes you will have to update the schema in preparation for installing Unity 4.X.

The schema is updated by running ADSchemaSetup.exe from the Unity CD/DVD on the AD domain controller that has the Schema Master role. To identify that server:

1. Click Start, click Run, type mmc, and then click OK.

2. On the Console menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in, click Add, double-click Active Directory Schema, click Close, and then click OK.

3. Right-click Active Directory Schema in the top left pane, and then click Operations Masters to view the server holding the schema master role.
