Migrating from SBS 2011 to Windows Server 2016 and Exchange Server 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • What would be the steps to do this migration? Where could I get guidance or info for doing this migration?

    So far I have:

    Build Server 2016 join to existing domain as member server, point DNS to existing SBS server.

    Build Second Server 2016 same as above, install Exchange 2016

    Connect Exchange 2016 to existing Exchange 2010 via connector.

    Test migrating one mailbox and test mail flow for this mailbox. If good proceed migrating all mailboxes

    Once all mailboxes are migrated, proceed with final steps of Exchange migration resulting in the shutdown of Exchange 2010 on existing SBS server.

    Setup DHCP on Server 2016 that will become DC

    Do data migration to new 2016 server that will become DC

    Promote server 2016 that will become DC to domain controller

    Move FSMO roles from SBS server to new server 2016 that is to become DC

    Shutdown SBS server and test environment.
