    We are a small company with an old Dell server running Windows Server 2008 R2. We have ordered a replacement server and I am hoping to migrate the domain controller and DNS roles to a VM on the new machine. We can then wipe and upgrade this old machine and use it for something less critical – maybe a backup domain controller.

    I am hoping someone can point me to a decent guide, or provide some general advice about path I should take or pitfalls to avoid.

    I work as a developer and have a pretty high comfort level in Windows Server. But I have never moved a dc or dns to another machine.</p>
