I need kind of a "walkthrough" on migrating from one server to another. It's a long story as to why but I've narrowed my troubleshooting down to: I need to migrate all data, printers, and "FSMO roles" from one Server 2012 Essentials server to another.
I'm building the new server as a VM right now. The old server is a VM that is running on a single drive instead of RAID--the joys of cleaning up somebody else's mess. I've tried moving the file from one drive to another manually, through the Hyper-V move tool, and have even tried using the P->V tool. It always fails because the old server is running on a single drive...that has bad blocks/sectors and is failing. Ugh...
Thankfully this is a small office of 13 computers, so there are only two printers for me to recreate. I know how to migrate data from one machine to another. How can I migrate domain ownership from one machine to another so that the computers don't have to get "re-joined" or anything?
Is there anything else I need to think about?
