Katherine Villyard's script for detaching / attaching is good. If you want to backup and restore that is also a good option that is frequently used. But do the logins first. Copy the code for sp_hexadecimal and sp_help_revlogin from this Technet article and use sp_help_revlogin to generate TSQL statements that you can use to copy your logins over. The ...

Take a look at opsi (opsi.org) for a deployment solution that does not require AD. It is free (opensource, gpl) and works great, but you definitly want some help in setting it up, depending on your inhouse know how with linux and windows. There are some advanced features that cost money,too.

There's a lot more detail to this than a simple question can answer, so I'll add the disclaimer that you really need to hire an AD consultant to walk you through this. There hasn't been a "primary domain controller" in years, thanks to Active Directory. Everything is handled by FSMO roles, which are services provided by the domain controllers. One of ...

There are a lot of different ways to migrate the databases. Backup and restore is the most commonly recommended, but if you have more than 100 databases you might want to script something to detach and attach the databases. I've successfully used this to migrate a very large number (hundreds) of databases to a new server: @ECHO ON set ...

Backup and Restore the databases as suggested. Then run this microsoft script (https://support.microsoft.com/kb/918992) on the old servers to generate a script to create the logins on the new server. Since you have two source servers, be sure to review your script carefully to make sure there aren't any duplicate entries or other issues.

This is a strange request... Mainly because there shouldn't be issues that result from vMotion (manual or DRS-triggered) in a vSphere environment. A vMotion should be safe. If there are issues stemming from it, you need to fix those instead of reacting to guest-level problems. This doesn't answer your question directly, but you're chasing the symptom ...

I have an alternative: What I usually do when having to move large amounts of changing data is to make a repeated run of rsync: Copy everything while the system is running, then stop it and repeat the rsync. This allows for a very short interruption. If the initial run takes very long and the data changes a lot, I sometimes insert a second run on the ...

What you are asking: how can I change the Active Directory of the Samba share (from A to B) without modify all the permissions in the filesystem of the samba share server? Isn't possible. The new AD domain will need to be referenced. You'll have to replace the permissions on the existing SAMBA server with permissions for the new domain manually. ...

You can consider to run some distributed filesystem over CoreOS cluster. This way whatever machine your database service container ends on, it will always be able to use database, mounted from DFS.
