    Starting a migration from SBS 2011 to Server 2012 R2 Datacenter.

    The migration doc says to "run the Migration Preparation Tool on the Source Server". I've found one link online stating that when going from SBS 2011 to Server 2012 R2 this step isn't necessary - but I've yet to find any other proof of this.

    If I am supposed to run the prep tool, where the heck is it??? Because it's not in the listed location on the ISO from MS:
    Ideas?
    Thx

    What on the server are you migrating? "Everything" is not what I'm looking for :)

    lol. Yeah, EVERYTHING! :p

    I am getting the former SBS 2011 AD ready - upgrading the schema. I think this site has an accurate migration guide and it doesn't mention anything about running the prep tool on the source (SBS 2011) server.

    I worked it all out and made the migration. It's done.
