Hi

Im doing a migration for a customer and wonder if I'm doing it the right way before I progress any further

All work is being done on virtual machines on 1 hyper-V server

Going to setup a 2012 Standard server as the primary DC (thought a little stuck there at moment)

Then setup a temporary 2008 R2 server with Exchange 2010 and migrate the exchange after the DC is migrated

Then setup another 2012 R2 server with Exchange 2013 and migrate the Exchange to that


Can anyone see any problems and got any hints?
