there are 2 file servers which are windows server 2008 and these servers are on virtual machine.
I have been told to migrate 2 file servers from windows server 2008 to windows server 2012.
1) can I migrate these 2 file servers from VMware to physical server?
2) also it is possible to install windows server 2012 on new VMware and copy the virual disk or clone the vm's if possible.
3) is there any difference between cloning or copying vm's
