Removing old Server Name in all GPO's?

I've migrated an SBS 2011 to a Windows 2012 R2 and it still shows the old Servername when you right click on any of them and click edit at the very top.

How do I get this removed so it references the new Server name or does it not matter as all the roles are now transferred over to the 2012 Server?

Please see attached screenshot for example.

many thanks in advance

Check your replication and DC health dcdiag and repadmin utilities.

Migrate all the FSMO roles to the new DC as suggested by Muhammad above and do verify the new FSMO role holder using
netdom query fsmo

Open in new window

Demote the SBS server if it is no longer required bu using dcpromo. If normal dcpromo fails then use dcpromo /forceremoval command

If forceremval fails then shutdown the SBS server and do metadata cleanup.

Below are links to videos on usage of dcdiag, seizing of FSMO roles and metadatacleanup.

Hi,

Did you performed Metadata cleanup to remove the old server? if already haven't performed, I would suggest to do that first

It's still online and just running Exchange 2010 until I migrate the mailboxes across does following that guide and still doing the metadata cleanup won't affect it? Or should I wait until it's completely done and dusted in terms of Exchange first out of interest?

Have you migrated the FSMO roles to a new DC? It looks like the SBS machine is still your domain controller.

domain naming Master and and PDC still show the old Server Name but the others show the new server name.

Shall I go ahead and get these moved to the new Server now? will this stop Exchange 2010 on premise working as that still runs off of the old Server at the moment.

Moving the FSMO roles is the solution.
