Old server has been Virtualised onto 2012 - Is this common?
Just wanted to pick your brains a bit.
We look after a number of schools in the area and have just taken one over from the LA and was wondering if anyone else has seen this:
Their old 2003 server which was on failing hardware and the OS/gpo/AD etc was in a bit of a mess, has been installed as a VM on a brand new 2012 server which the school bought. So although the school see this brand new server everyday, the DC is actually an aging OS which is still in need of a rebuild.
Is this common practice these days or just utter laziness on the part of the previous support company?
Would be interested in your comments.
