I have windows server 2008R2 and I got a new windows server 2012. How I can migrate all users from old to new server. The new server will replace the old server (same domain controller).

Also, I have backup domain controller which is now connected to windows server 2008R2. when I migrate from server 2008R2 to server 2012, how I can connect the old backup domain controller to be backup domain controller to server 2012?

Also, the domain controller is a print server. Is it possible to migrate all printer to a new domain controller or I have to install all printer again? If I have to install all new printer again on a new server how I can deploy them to all users? there is no way I can move to all users and install the sharing printer for them.

Also, Is it possible to migrate the folder sharing?
