WIndows 2008 SBS MIGRATION
Posted on 2013-05-30
My present environment:
Single server Windows 2008 SP2 SBS, 25 users,
Exchange is not used in the SBS since we migrated to Office 365 some monthes ago
We need to add a new Windows 2012 standard edition server. AD will me migrated also
We will keep the SBS 2008 server online, but all data will be migrated to the new Windows 2012 server. SBS will become a spare server for AD replication
Is WIn 2012 similar to Windows 2008 regarding installation and migration of AD?
WIll I have to migrate to 4 FSMO roles to 2012? what will happens if I do not do it?
Would I be able to keep W8K SBS as a second AD after migrating FSMO roles?
I do want to migrate AD to the new server 2012 but I do NOT want to migrate all specific SBS GPOs , Scripts, ect...is it possible?
Is there a document describing this migration ?
