Advice from Upgrading From SBS 2003
Posted on 2014-10-16
Hi Guys just after some advice really
We are currently Running SBS2003, we have just Purchased a New Dell Server and are going to Virtualize the New Environment.
So we have a VM for the DC, a VM for the Exchange Server, and a VM for TS.
Given that there is no Upgrade Path from SBS 2003 to Server 2012 R2, we are just going to start from Scratch.
Just after advice on doing this process smoothly, ie should I call the new domain the same as the old one?, is there an easy way to rejoin the machines to the new domain without them loosing their profiles?.
Is the best way to move Exchange over is to backup to .pst and completely reinstall Exchange as fresh?
Any help much appreciated
