Hello. I'm attempting to simulate an SBS 2003 to Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials migration in a VM test environment.
I have the SBS 2003 box fully prepped per the following guide:
I've downloaded an 180 day eval of Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials. When I boot up the new destination server VM using the ISO, I'm presented with a typical Windows 2012 setup. There is NO option to do a migration installation.
When I finish the base install, a Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials configuration Wizard pops up asking for Time & Date, etc. Again, there is NO option to do any kind of Migration Setup.
I've made sure the TCP/IP config is good on the new server - it can ping the test SBS box and sees the domain.
The ONLY option seems to be setting up the new Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials Box in a brand new domain.
Please help. This is driving me crazy!
