I have an old Linux server that I want to migrate to a Windows 2012 one. Some applications point to this Linux server for databases that need to be migrated to the new server. I also want to deploy Active Directory and join machines to the new domain. Is there a way to make those shares point to the new server so I don't have to modify paths from within the applications? First I thought of renaming the new server exactly like the old one and give it the same IP after migration but I'm just worried that it will cause issues with DNS and such.
Thank you for your help.
