Server 208R2 Standard to Server 2016 Essentials Migration

Hi all. I help out at a small charity with a handful of users. We have one DC (Server 208R2 Standard) and need to migrate to one new DC (Server 2016 Essentials).


I have checked out these resources https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server-essentials/migrate/migrate-server-data-to-windows-se... but a lot of it is not relevant and I cant find Server 208R2 Standard mentioned.


Am I asking the impossible? I just need to know what steps to take in what order to migrate FSMOs, AD, DHCP and DNS across. We dont have anything fancy on this server. Just users, shared areas and a shared printer, group policies and so on.


Many thanks in advance.
