Hi all

I have two scenarios coming up.

First single physical server environment.  2008 R2 EOL standard server, need to migrate over to new hardware running Win2k12R2, it is their only DC, FISMO role holder/dns/dhcp, GC etc - I have always enlisted MS Support in the past because of tight windows for Outages, and Prod environments, however, does anyone have a solid step by step I can use as a guideline for a successful migration of these roles, a way to confirm test?  The goal is to decom the old prod server, that is generally reliable enough to not have to bother with MS support on these migrations.

The second scenario is similar but going physical to a new virtual DC - potentially will go to Win2k16. The question would be regarding the migration of roles to 2016.

Yes, MS Support came at a premium but always thought it was a good idea, "just in case" was able to always confirm and get up and running during/post migration.
Thoughts/ideas? Thanks guys!
