sorry, old server is is office and new server is at home
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I think both systems need to be in same network?

Correct.

I would set up the new one and promote it to a DC and demote the old.

This could be done and I can do it remote you're looking at around 4 hours (half day) work for it to be done correctly

I will engage you when I have access to the office. Are you available this Sunday or Monday?

This would be a premium service and would take a lot more time than this questions scope.

Can you give me your email?

Note: Can you please rate me at the top so I am credited with my time, 5/5 gives me most credit and would be much appreciated. Thanks.
