Migration from SBS 2011 to Server 2012 Essentials role and Exchange 2013

Hey guys, Im looking to migrate my home lab to Server 2012 Essentials role and Exchange 2013 from SBS 2011. Is there any guides to this?

I dont really like migrations because of the crud that can come along with them. As I say this is only a lab with a bit of mail in it. Would it be better just to start again (though I do need to move the mail)?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Easier to just start again to be honest. If you only have a few mailboxes you can just export them to PST files from the old environment then import them into the new environment.

Pete Long has a nice guide on migrating Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2013. Doesn't matter if it is SBS Exchange. Same deal.

TechNet has an excellent Exchange migration guide.

DC Promo or migration mode, I am not sure which, Essentials in then migrate Exchange. It would be a great experience that could benefit you down the line. Go for it!
