I have a customer who wants to migration from Small Business Server 2011 with Exchange 2010 to a completely new domain with Server 2012 on Exchange 2013.

Guides?  Gotch-ya's?  etc?

Thanks.

Server 2012 Essentials is considered the new version of Small Business Server and information on it can be found on the following link:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sbs/
 The full version of Server 2012 can be read about here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/products/windows-server-2012-r2/default.aspx#fbid=-8Bc2E35kBQ

Also tons of information about Server 2012 linked from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/#fbid=-8Bc2E35kBQ

Exchange Server info can be located here along with a download link:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/hh973395.aspx and an overview of features can be found at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/microsoft-exchange-features-email-for-business-FX103737962.aspx

Thanks tqfdotus but those articles do not show any information about Exchange and cross domain migration coming from SBS to Server 2012 Standard.

Sorry, guess I was going for the 'etc.' category instead. Let's try a little harder...

This guide is for migrating from SBS2011 to Server 2012 Essentials:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj721754.aspx

Also see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn408633.aspx

This article adds a little flavor to it:
http://kx.cloudingenium.com/microsoft/servers/small-business-server/essentials-2012/migration-from-windows-small-business-server-2011-standard-to-windows-server-2012-essentials/

Here is a guide to updating domain controllers to Server 2012:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh994618.aspx

From what I can find, the migration to Server 2012 Essentials is, for lack of a better word, essentially the same as migrating to Server 2012 Standard. Except the Server 2012 Standard does not seem to have a "migration mode" so there are some additional steps. See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj247582.aspx

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

The one point of clarification that no one has really ask is, do they want a completely new internal domain name from what the SBS server is using, or do they simply want to change the external domain for email, remote access, etc.  It's also not clear how many users they have, and why they are leaving SBS 2011.

If they want a completely new domain internally, it's just a clean install of server 2012, recreation of users accounts, security groups, etc.  you'll have to copy all data to an external drive then back to new server.  Email will have to be exported to.pst files and then imported into the new Exchange server.  All this because SBS does not permit establishing trusts with other domains.

I've decided to set up Exchange 2010 on the new domain and do a lateral move then upgrade to 2013.  What I've read seems to point more towards that type of migration.

As I indicated before...if you're setting up a completely NEW Active Directory Domain, you can't migrate, not matter what version of Exchange you're doing because you CAN'T create trusts between an SBS domain and another Active Directory domain.
