Server 2012 R File Server

I have a VM file server, the VM is running 2012 R2 and has Data Duplication enabled. The server the vm is running on is being recommissioned for something else and a new physical server has been acquired for the data server. The data from the vm needs to move to the new server, can I simply just copy the data across without worrying about the Data Duplication?

The deduplicated data is stored on the same drive it is supposed to be ("e:" for example).  If you move that drive to another host AND it has Data Deduplication enabled, it should be seen properly.  Considering that this is a VM, you should test - and you should be able to do so easily.

The target system is not a VM and duplication wont be enabled.

Then yes, copy the data from one system to another (seems like a bad idea not virtualzing the second system, but suit yourself).
