I have a physical Windows 2003 server box that is my DC as well as file&print server and holds all FSMO roles, DHCP, DNS, etc. (We're a small company.)
This server is running out of space, and I am looking to virtualize it. I am also looking to start the move towards Windows 2008 Server.
Can you recommend the best way I go about approaching this? My initial hope was to keep everything still on this one server, have it as 2008 and virtualized (as opposed to 2 separate servers), but perhaps that's not the best idea anymore. I also would prefer to not have to recreate all the shares and printer access.
Please note I am using the free version of ESXi, so some of my options are limited. Thanks.
