Moving from SBS 2002 > Server 2012\Exchange 2010
Posted on 2014-01-19
Hello, my company currently is running a single SBS 2003 server with Exchange (no SQL), and we have 3 users. I need to move my network to a Windows 2012 server\Exchange 2010 environment due to my current servers hardware problems.
I am planning on introducing the Win2012 server to my domain, transfer the FSMO roles over to it via the Win2012 server manager\add roles function. Afterwards, I was planning on installing Exchange 2010 on the Win2012 server, moving the mailboxes over to the new server, move the user shares, printers, etc. over.
Does anyone see a problem going this route?
Also, once I move the shares over what is the best way to re-direct the user mapping to the new share location; since I am assuming I cannot change the server name once I have installed the fmso roles (esp. certificate services)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
