Upgrading to New 2012 Server as Domain Controller
Posted on 2016-07-26
We are updating to a new 2012 server to be our domain controller. We are upgrading from a single 2008 32bit domain controller that will be demoted and retired. I have successfully checked domain functionality and it is currently at 2003, added the new 2012 server to the domain and added the roles AD DS and DNS. I have promoted the server to a DC and checked all and the AD appears to be populated correctly. We do have a separate exchange 2010 server in the domain that will remain for now. What do I need to do next? Transfer the FSMO roles from the 2008 32bit server to the New 2012 server? Is there any other tasks that would need to be accomplished for the exchange server?
