    Hi Everyone

    I am upgrading a customer server and here What I need your advise with

    1 Current server is a windows 2003 SBS server working as a DC
    2. The server is setup so all documents for all users get save and sync on the server since the user constaly float between workstations
    3. Server is essentially use for file storage

    We order a new server from Dell with windows 2012 essentials

    I need you help with
    1. Instructions on how to setup server 2012, then demote 2003 and make the 2012 my DC
    2. Move all users form 2003 to 2012
    3. Setup server to all documents are saved and sync on the server as it was on the 2003

    Do I need additional Cals licenses for the users since this is only a file storage server?

    Thanks for your help in advance
