The correct order for setting up VMs in a Virtual network RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sorry in advance if this has been asked but I couldn't locate it.

    I'm upgrading an existing network. Current network has 2 Win Server 2008 r2 VMs. (1 running AD, exchange, sql, dhcp, dns, file services, terminal services. 2 running file services and print services)

    The new setup will have 9 Win Server 2012 R2 VMs. 1.DC(AD, DNS, DHCP) 2. Backup DC 3. File Share(File and print services) 4. Admin/Management (RSAT) 5.Exchange (Exchange Server 2013) 6. Remote Desktop Services 7.SQL(SQL 2012) 8. SharePoint 9. Logging

    In what order would you create these and migrate existing roles over? I'm thinking I can do it in the order listed 1-9. But does anyone see any potential issues with this?

    Thanks in advance.
