This cumulative update includes fixes for nonsecurity issues and all previously released fixes for security and nonsecurity issues
Known issues in this cumulative update
- In multidomain Active Directory forests in which Exchange is installed or has been prepared previously by using the /PrepareDomain option in Setup, this action must be completed after the /PrepareAD command for this cumulative update has been completed and the changes are replicated to all domains. Setup will try to run the /PrepareAD command during the first server installation. Installation will finish only if the user who initiated Setup has the appropriate permissions.
- If you are upgrading from Cumulative Update 13 for Exchange Server 2016 to Cumulative Update 14 for Exchange Server 2016, then there’s no need to run the /PrepareAD or /PrepareDomain. No additional actions (prepareAD, prepareDomain, or assigning permissions) are required.
- If you has ever skipped a Cumulative Update (for example, you are upgrading from an earlier version before Cumulative Update 13 for Exchange Server 2016), or this is a first Exchange Server installation in the AD, then this Known Issue section should be taken care of.
a. About the /PrepareDomain operation in multidomain:
The /PrepareDomain operation automatically runs in the Active Directory domain in which the /PrepareAD command is run. However, it may be unable to update other domains in the forest. Therefore, a domain administrator should run the /PrepareDomain in other domains in the forest.
b. About the permission question:
As the /PrepareAD is triggered in Setup, if the user who initiates Setup isn’t a member of Schema Admins and Enterprise Admins, the readiness check will fail and you receive the following error messages:
To avoid the error messages, either the user should join Schema Admins and Enterprise Admins groups, or another user in Schema Admins and Enterprise Admins groups manually runs the /PrepareAD for this Cumulative Update first. Then the Exchange admin user can start Setup.
- The Set-SendConnector cmdlet does not work for Exchange Server 2016 in hybrid scenarios that have a Edge server installed. For more information, see KB 4523519.
- Autodiscover Event ID 1 after installing Cumulative Update 14 for Exchange Server 2016. For more information, see KB 4532190.
