I'm replacing a SBS2008 system that is beginning to have some hardware issues (hard disk backplane is getting flaky etc.). System is 5 years old.
I need to have a server/DC that runs Microsoft Exchange. Users don't use SharePoint; they simply use some shared folders, and Exchange.
1. What's the best OS to achieve this? SBS 2011 or Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials?
2. Is a migration to either of these OS's recommended, or a fresh install?
