Out of License Alert Windows Server 2008 SBS

Background - migrating from SBS 2008 on old server to Server Standard 2012 R2 on a new server. I tried to get things started yesterday (Sunday) in preparation for migrating the SQL database and other files and users tomorrow night (Tuesday).

Perhaps I misunderstood the directions for a server migration but I connected the new server to AD and migrated the FSMO roles. Now (Monday morning) 2008 server is complaining about being out of licenses. Will the server be okay until tomorrow night when I move the data??

DNS is connected. Still have to do DHCP and a few other things I guess. See attached.

SBS is very funny about licensing, typically when migrating to a different server it is advised to migrate FMSO roles last as if SBS realises these are on a different server it logs it as a breach of license which can cause the server to shut itself down every hour or so.

I would move the FSMO roles back to the SBS server until you've migrated everything else across.

One of the reasons if you're not familiar with SBS or SBS Migrations that you should hire a professional to assist/do it for you.  Knowing what NOT to do or WHEN to do something is just as important as knowing what to do.
