How to introduce 2012 standard server into SBS 2003 network

Last Modified: 2015-06-21
We have a SBS 2003 R2 Windows Server that hosts domain and other resources. As 2003 is to be phased out, we got a 2012 R2 Standard Edition Server, and we need to introduce it into the network.

So, how to do it?

The idea is that 2012 will become a AD controller, and 2003 will be phased out and left working as a backup server. However, I am not sure what can I expect from SBS, as I know it has series of limitations.

Thanks in advance! :-)
