SBS 2008 To Essentials 2012 R2 Migration Steps RRS feed

  • Question

  • We currently have a SBS 2008 server in place running all SBS features and Exchange.  The organization has about 15 users/desktops (a portion of the users also have the email/calendar setup on their phones) and 400GB of server data.

    I have bought a new new server and WS 2012 R2 Essentials.  We want to host the new Essentials instance in Hyper-V and then tie in Office 365 for Office & hosted Exchange.

    Has anyone gone through this process or can you tell me the steps I need to take for a successful migration?

    What I am struggling with is the best way to migrate user accounts, server settings (AD, etc), and domain PCs to the new server as well as when/how to migrate the Exchange part to Office 365?

    Thanks in advance for your insight!
