I was having some issues with my 2012R2 Essentials DC running as a VM on 2012 Hyper-V.  I have redone and migrated to an identical 2012R2 Essentials VM DC with the same domain (Different computer name and IP).  As soon as everything it finished I will junk the original VM.  I am not quite sure the proper steps to 'switch over' the exchange 2013 server though.  It was also running as a VM on the same hyper-v.  Just not sure how to 'attach it' to the new DC.  Any guidance would be appreciated.

Exchange 2013 should just pick up the new domain controller. But it does require that the DC also be acting as a Global Catalog. Have you moved the FSMO roles from the old DC to the new DC? Lastly, assuming you set up/moved DNS on the new box, have you reconfigured the DNS settings on the Exchange 2013's NIC properties?

Thanks Gareth,

I just decommissioned the old server this evening.  I haven't brought up the exchange server yet.  Probably later tonight and the first thing I will do is reconfigure the NIC.  I'll let you know.

Just an update,

I had to remove the server from the domain then re add it but now it is all up and running well.

Thanks for the help,

Steve
