I have a customer with a SBS 2008 server (yes, the one with Exchange 2007) that is transitioning straight to Server 2016 Essentials version. My questions are these:
1) I believe I found that I cannot migrate from this version of SBS, can anyone confirm? The end goal is the remove the SBS server (Exchange is going online/cutover migration) and be left with just the 2016 Essentials with the roles and file shares.
2) Am I better off adding the existing pc's to a newly created domain on the Essentials 2016 server? I have less than 10 client pc's and am fine with that if its the recommended method.
3) The server came preloaded and was already added to the existing domain manually and had the DC role added. If #2 is the way to go, can I remove it without reinstalling to reset the wizard?
