Hi all This is my first time posting in Windows Server forum. I need advice and direction in replacing Windows 2008 R2 x64 bit with the new Windows 2012 Standard x64 bit. I have googled around, and the closest I found was Replacing old DC 2003 with new DC 2008. We used our current Windows 2008 R2 as the DC, DHCP, DNS, Active Directory and File Server. We intend to take down this 2008 completely and put this 2012 in place using the same IP and ServerName as the 2008. As I am very new to Windows Server, can someone kindly give me advice on the steps and necessary precaution to take note?
