We have a Windows server Standard FE that we want to retire and install a Windows 2012 Essentials box in its place. The FE box is a domain controller currently and I would like to join the new Essentials machine to the current domain to move the active directory over.
Is that possible with Windows Standard FE? I know my options are somewhat limited with FE but we are basically only joining the two together long enough to move the server roles and AD over to the 2012 Essentials machine and then retire the old box.
Thanks for your help.
