Upgrade of Exchange 2013 from CU2 to CU3 fails with the following error:

    The following error was generated when "$error.Clear(); 
              $fe = get-ActiveSyncVirtualDirectory -server $RoleFqdnOrName -DomainController 
              $RoleDomainController -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue;
              if ($fe -eq $null)
                new-ActiveSyncVirtualDirectory -DomainController 
                $RoleDomainController -Role ClientAccess;
                update-ActiveSyncVirtualDirectory $fe -DomainController 
                $RoleDomainController -InstallIsapiFilter $true
            " was run: "Cannot convert 'System.Object[]' 
            to the type 'Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.VirtualDirectoryIdParameter' 
            required by parameter 'Identity'. Specified method is not supported.".


There are brands with the Exchnage2013Protocols turned on. Feature request #POA-83835 is created to rework branding scheme of Exchange - POA should not create multiple Exchange virtual directories on IIS website on the same host to comply Microsoft requirements.


As a temporary solution, you can disable Exchange Protocols for all brands before the upgrade.
