I looking for information regarding my best option for migrating out of our current Server 2003 which is currently providing DC, AD, & DNS.
While I want to migrate the above roles out of Server 2003 we do want to keep the Server 2003 available for use with older programs (no internet access).
Our current setup is as follows......
Physical Server (Hyper-V host to 3 VM Servers below): Server 2008 R2 Enterprise (currently not part of the Domain)
3 Hyper-V VM's:
1. Server 2003 ( currently providing DC, AD, DNS),
2. Server 2003 Terminal Server (running a few older programs) ,
3. Server 2012 R2 (RDP Server for 2 remote users)
Which is our best option for replacing Roles from the Server 2003: migrating into our Physical 2008 Enterprise Server or migrating into the Server 2012 R2 VM Server ?
While I realize there are issues with migrating to either the 2008 Enterprise or the 2012 VM Server I am looking for opinions on best option.
Thank you in advance.
