Hello, I have a 2008 essentials server. I purchased a new 2012 standard server. I am planning to migrate services and users to the new server and shutdown the old server.

Is there a correct way to move the AD from the 2008 essentials to 2012 standard? With separate hardware? No in place upgrades.
‘thanks

There is no such product as 2008 essentials. Knowing (accurately) what product you are on would help us give you better guidance. If you can check that and get back to us...
