SBS 2011 standard to Windows Server 2016 Essentials migration
Microsoft's docs recommend to move the DHCP funtion to the router.
Is there a good reason for this as opposed to moving it to the 2016 server?
Has anyone had favorable/unfavorable results either way?
If on 2016, can the existing scope/parameters be moved easily from SBS?
