I have an older machine that is running windows server 2008 R2 Enterprise edition. It hosts two VM's, a file server and domain controller. The actual drive that these VM's are stored on resides on a Dell Equallogic SAN. I would like to move these VM's to a new Windows server 2012 R2 Standard server. What do you think is the best method? Are there any step-by-step instructions on this process?
