Hoping for some advice from IT people with more experience than I.
Replacing an 8year old SBS2011 (name = “SERVER”), with a new Server 2022 Standard.
The Exchange 2010 has already been migrated to 365.
New hardware = HPE ProLiant ML350 G10 server; 20 cores, 32GB RAM, 4-GNics.
This is for a small company with @30 users.
Will be migrating from SBS2011 to the new system, so I want to keep the name of the company and user data as “SERVER”, so that links and other desktop maps will work ok.
My plan is:
Install the 2022 Std. on the hardware, (Name = “DCServer”).
Assign NIC1 to DCServer
Migrate the AD, DNS, DHCP to DCServer
Install Hyper-V on DCServer.
Assign the other 3 nics to the VM
Install a second 2022 Std. as a VM, (Name = “SERVER”)
Migrate the data & shares to SERVER.
Does this plan work? Any advice or suggestions are appreciated.
Another idea: install 2022 on the hardware and install both the DCServer and SERVER as VMs?
