Hi Experts,

on one site we have an old server on premise.
This server is WIN 2008, not R2.
The server has roles like AD,DNS,DHCP and File and Printserver.

Is it possible to upgrade to WIN2012R2 ?
Or what do you recommend in this situation ?

I would recommend a new install on different hardware or VM and migrating the roles to the new server.

An in place upgrade of non-R2 2008 to 2012 R2 is not supported, as in the table at:

ok I see.
on my small site I have planned a mini datacenter from DELL -> VRTX.
Here I want to virtulize my servers which I need.

Should I put all roles again on one vm or better split it up ?

You could do either. It would depend on your circumstances.

Things to consider would be:

Windows licensing
Load
Server spec

For a small site I would suggest maybe AD, DNS, DHCP on one VM and File and Print on a second.

ok thanks a lot.
Lets say first I will make a p2v to my new vmware solution.
And later I start with new vm´s and migrate all roles and services.
