I'm doing some VM work and need your input.
I have three new servers Tyan1, Tyan2, and Tyan3.
I have old servers that I want to virtualize.
Please see attached document for details about these servers.
My main question is migration DC1 and DC2 to VMs running Windows Server 2012 Std (from Windows 2008 R2).
what is the migration process to go from DC 2008 R2 to DC 2012 Std? Should I demote and decommission DC2 first, then migrate DC1 to 2012 on the VM, then create a new VM for DC2 and assign it as a global catalog?
The rest (file servers, endpoint, wsus) I've got it covered.
