Exchange Server 2013 RTM CU 1 Released!

Great news today, Microsoft has released Exchange Server 2013 RTM Cumulative Update 1 and you can find it here. But before you install the CU there is a number of things you need to be aware of. Here is a short list of some of the points to consider:

  • This is a full build, that means that when installing a new server you do not need the RTM media. You can simply install using only the CU.
  • Active Directory Preparation need to be done, this includes /PrepareSchema, /PrepareAD and /PrepareDomain.
  • To upgrade from Exchange 2013 RTM run setup.exe /m:upgrade.
