Migration - SBS 2008 to Server 2012 Std
Posted on 2013-12-22
I have a customer with an SBS 2008 server that is quickly dying. I have a new 2012 server that is built with the core installation.
My problem at this point is trying to get 2012 into the existing domain. Then migrate all of the accounts, etc to 2012. Once stable and functional SBS 2008 will go offline. Exchange is not an issue as the customer is now on Office 365. File migration is being handled with backups & file copies. At this point I cannot even get 2012 to create it's own standalone domain, that would at least be something.
I have tried going through the wizards, tech forums, etc and still at ground Zero. I need some fast help and if necessary remote assistance. I am a 1 man operation in the dark at this point. I do not want to have to unjoin & rejoin 25+ computers at this point.
