Ok, so I have a 2008 SBS server. I have purchased a 2012 Essential server. Most of my misc. functions are moving tot he cloud. Specifically, I am moving Exchange, the Phone solution, CRM, Backup, and so forth.
I'm leaving behind QuickBooks, and Document management as the company will move towards a paperless environment as soon as is feasible.
I have a domain now under SBS. Doe it make sense to build a second domain and or simply add the essential server as a member server for the time being and then migrate it the role of domain controller once I retire or is that technically impractical.
I'm looking for some insight at to what might be te best way. This is likely a opinion matter more than pure objectivity.
