Exchange 2016 CU7 and Exchange 2013 CU18

Microsoft has released its quarterly updates for Exchange:

  • Exchange 2016 CU17.
  • Exchange 2013 CU18.

It has been quiet around these updates, and they do not bring a whole lot of features.

Important to note is that the minimum Forest Functional Level (FFL) has been raised to Windows Server 2008 R2. Personally I think this is an indication that more exciting stuff is along the way, especially around Exchange 2016 (my personal expectation, don’t shoot the messenger :-))

There are schema changes in Exchange 2016 CU7, so when installing this update you have to execute the following commands:

Setup.exe /PrepareSchema /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms
Setup.exe /PrepareAD /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms
Setup.exe /PrepareDomain /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms

When it comes to the .NET Framework, Microsoft is working on a new .NET Framework release (version 4.7.1). The upcoming quarterly update of December 2018 will support this version of the .NET Framework.

  1. The whole DOTNET 4.7 issue is just ridiculous. I’ve an Exchange 2013 CU9 box that was automatically updated to 4.7. I don’t even know what should I do. CU9 isn’t even supported with DOTNET 4.6.2.
