You've built your Hyper-V lab environment at our IT Camp events … now it's time to put that lab environment to good use so that you can take advantage of those cool Server 2008 R2 features like Managed Service Accounts, Active Directory Recycle Bin, Offline Domain Join and Hyper-V Live Migration!
Below I'm providing a list of useful links that you can use in your own lab environment to step through a migration to Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. Once you've followed the first four steps to prepare your lab environment and install the server migration tool bits, then follow the links in Step 5 that are appropriate for the server roles you'd like to migrate. If you have servers that include multiple roles, you'll want to step through the combined steps for each of the roles in your lab and then customize them as appropriate for your production environment.
Once you've completed your testing, you'll have all the steps needed for you to begin your production migrations to Windows Server 2008 R2!
