I have used Acronis to restore a 2012r2 Essentials image from a old server to a new server. I'm going to be decommissioning the old and replacing with the new. My question is before I plug the new one into the network and shut down the old what should I do? Is it as simple as shutting the old down and plugging in the new server since I restored the complete image to the new as long as the IP is the same as the old? Will the clients/devices connect to the new without having to reconnect with the connector? I hope this makes sense!
All help is greatly appreciated...Thanks
