This weekend i am upgrading my server from server2k3 to 2012 R2.
What is the best way to approach it, i am thinking
BACKUP old server 2k3 machine
Build new 2012 machine
Demote 2k3 machine as PDC
Promote 2012 as PDC
restore data from 2k3 machine to 2012
How do i restore all the active directory settings?
