The SBS Servers tend to gather a lot of backup data, in hidden directories that happens to get the quotas over the limit. You should check for such as at times the servers might have been set up to back up each of the clients in a small SBS environment. Once you do find these then you can proceed to un-hide and delete those files that you feel are no longer ...

You might be surprised by the response that you get from Microsoft support, since this problem seems to not be so much about supporting Server 2003, as it is about a roadblock that's preventing you from moving to 2012 R2. At least, you should spin it that way. I am also almost sure that this is due to schema customization. It's usually by 3rd party ...

Probably, this has to do with the way the average is calculated. Newer versions of Perfmon use a different calculation: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ntdebugging/archive/2013/09/30/performance-monitor-averages-the-right-way-and-the-wrong-way.aspx What this change boils down to, is that newer versions of perfmon take the amount of reads into account for each ...

The DHCP server is assigning the DNS servers to the clients and that's where you need to fix this. The fact that the ASA itself is using 192.168.2.70 for DNS means that it is using 192.168.2.70 for it's own DNS resolution, it doesn't meant that it's assigning 192.168.2.70 to the DHCP clients.

Fix your DHCP server, 192.168.3.1 aka "old Cisco ASA", to hand out the address of the nameservers you want to use.

Thanks for your help. I managed to solve my own issue. At the time this issue was in place, I couldn't view network shares on the primary domain controller (server 2012). This was due to a GPO which i wasn't aware of which was blocking file and print sharing feature. When that was sorted out, all went well and I was able to demote DC gracefully.
