I have just migrated the emails on an SBS 2008 server to Exchange Online.
There is now talk of upgrading the server to Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials. I have therefore been reading up on migrating as it is something I have not done before. I am pretty happy and confident with what i have read but I can't find the answers to a few, maybe stupid, questions that I need to clarify:
The Migration document I refer to is:
1. When you set the new server up as a replica Domain Controller and transfer the Operations Master Roles, what actually gets migrated? Specifically, Is it all the User Accounts and their personal data - Documents, Pictures etc? Will I therefore only have to move other shared folders such as a Company Folder and install relevant programs - i.e Sage?
2. While this migration is ongoing, can the users continue to work as normal? Or is it better to do this out-of-hours? It is just that I am not based on-site and some users have a lot of data. If user data is moved as mentioned in point 1, then I would prefer just to leave it running through work day(s) and, once all migrated, complete the rest of the set up over a weekend.
Many thanks in advance for your answers.
