Anyone upgraded all their servers to 2012?
Just wondering what time scale if any people are putting on upgrading their servers to 2012. I might start with my DC's and then file servers.. what about KMS server. I belive I need to completely replan my hyperV set up if it is clustered? Exchange 2010 I will leave running on 2008R2 for a long time - cant see any time soon we will be upgrading to 2013 exchange.
Just curious to what other folks plans are for the next 12+ months ?

Our SIMS server will be going over very soon. We started easy - our CCTV server is 2012 but haven't done much with it. I'd also like to get both our main fileservers (and SCCM) over to 2012 but that'll take some testing when I have the time to do so. Main reason for that is decent dedupe.

We've now got our storage server, 2 Hyper-V hosts, SIM, KMS, SCCM, and PKI servers on 2012. We're slowly but surely migrating over to 2012.
Some things won't be moving as yet - such as our RDS farms. Others are due to be moved this summer - DHCP, RDS licensing, library system (if it is supported, else it'll be moving to 2008 R2 from 2003), IAS (which will become NPS), helpdesk server, etc...
The limiting factor is 3rd party support. There are some packages that as yet don't support it.

We've upgraded 8 of our servers so far

We are moving to 2012 on all of our servers during the summer break [Currently we have 2003, 2008 and storage server]
At the same time we are deploying a virtualised server solution and updating/upgrading the cabling where required. The server room is to be completely reworked: We will organise the copper and fibre feeds [long overdue in my opinion]
We have a lot of work on this summer...

Been testing server 2012 since last September/October and we have upgraded/migrated all our infrastructure servers i.e. DC's, DNS, DHCP, NPS, PKI. Applications servers are being slowly migrated.
If the server role supports core we are running it with minimal gui, this stops stupid admins browsing the internet on the servers.
I dont see any reason to upgrade our Exchange 2010 servers to 2012 unless we get new hardware.
All new servers will be 2012 as long as the 3rd party software supports it.

If you have moved all your server to 2012 what backup software are you using ?

Our Summer move was completed successfully. We now have virtualised severs protected by Dell AppAssure: Version: 18.104.22.168154.

We've been using 2012 for a year or so now, migrating and adding more bit by bit. Upgraded to R2 this week and just sorting DPM R2 now to complete the process.

We've got one currently, which is a web server. Will hopefully be moving the finance system to a new 2012 server soon. Not got any plans for the rest yet.
Are doing in place upgrades from 2008 R2 to 2012/R2 or migrating the data/apps to new servers?

Upgraded 4 of our DC's from Server 2008 to Server 2012 over the half term. I like server 2012, feels a lot nicer to be poking about in, but I hate that they have put Metro on a server OS!
