I have a Server, 2008 R2 that run SQL 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010 SP1.
We are looking to upgrade to Server 2012. I also need to to put Exchange on a VM and upgrade to 2013.
My plan is this.
1. Full Backup.
2. In-place upgrade Server 2008 R2 Operating System to 2012.
3. In-place upgrade SQL Server 2008 R2 to 2012.
4. Backup Exchange Database, Uninstall Exchange.
5. Install server 2012 on a VM and install Exchange 2013 and import mailbox's.
Anyone know of any gotcha's or have a better plan of attack?
