    Hi @RavindraPawar-8899,

    You can migrate your file server by using the Storage Migration Service, you can follow along here:

    Use Storage Migration Service to migrate a server
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/storage-migration-service/migrate-data

    Migrating roles and features in Windows Server
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/get-started/migrate-roles-and-features

    Note: Windows Server 2019 "R2" does not exist, it's simply "Windows Server 2019".
