There is no special requirement. If you deploy the CU then bring you servers in the maintenance mode or you can run the /PrepareAd from the binaries. and don’t forget to Test, Test and Test in your lab first.

In order to apply these changes, a directory admin will need to run the cumulative update setup program with the /PrepareAD parameter. When multiple Exchange versions co-exist in a single Active Directory forest, the cumulative update matching the latest version of Exchange deployed should be used to run /PrepareAD. Setup will automatically run /PrepareDomain in the domain where /PrepareAD is executed. Environments with multiple domains in the forest will need to run the cumulative update setup program using the /PrepareDomain parameter in all domains in the forest. These steps will update the rights granted to Exchange Servers in the Active Directory to meet the new permissions scope. More information on /PrepareAD and /PrepareDomain is available at this link.”
