Windows SBS 2008 -> Windows Server 2012 R2 Foundation
Posted on 2014-07-11
I have found a lot articles about migration from SBS 2008 to Essentials 2012, but there is not any word about Foundation server.
I have SBS 2008 with 6 users, not using Exchange server today. Because of my hardware is running out of life I want to upgrade to new hardware with Windows Server 2012 R2 Foundation. Is it even possible? Can I just promote the new server to existing domain?
I need to migrate AD, DNS, GPO, File Server.
Have you any experience with this? Do Windows Fondation have a migration mode as Essentials does?
