Migration from 2012 essential to 2012 essential R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to convert a 2012 essential trial on a 2012 essential R2 licenced. After the active directory domain setup I promote as a replication partner, it all seems OK and the AD computer are replicated but netlogon and sysvol are not shared and are not replicated. What am I doing wrong ? Thanks for answers

  • Hi,

    I'm afraid I don't understand the issue.  Can you give more detail please.  What did you have to start with, what did you do before what you are attempting to do  now, and what, exactly, are you doing now.  That is to ask:  Was there an AD domain prior, and if so, what was the version of the server.  Then you installed Server essentials 2012 trial and now you want to license Server essentials 2012 R2 on that same box or what exactly is going on?

    IIRC, Server Essentials, either version, must hold all the FSMO roles.  There can be other DCs or member servers, but Essentials, just like SBS before it, must be the root of the forest and hold all the roles.

  • Hi,

    thanks for your reply.

    I installed, for a my customer, in a new server,  a  version of Windows Server 2012 Trial in Virtual mode with Hyper-V.
    When the customer has decided to buy the operating system, I realized that the windows essential license it's  not longer available for purchasee, I bought Windows Server 2012 Essential R2 but the license code is not installable on the  Windows Server 2012 Essential. Now I'm trying to install the Win Serv 2012 R2 without reinstalling the server again migrating operating systems . I installed another virtual machine with version R2 ,  but I can not make a successful migration.

    After the active directory domain setup I promote as a replication partner, it all seems OK and the AD computer are replicated but netlogon and sysvol are not shared and are not replicated .

    So I can not remove the old operating system

    Sorry for my English

  • Anything in the event logs? Can you post an ipconfig /all and the output of DCDiag? And check time settings on both servers.
