Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2008 R2 or 2012.

Is it possible to take a backup of Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2008 R2 or 2012 and backup data, AD(Active Directory), user, groups, permission and all relevant information to that backup, then build a new machine and simply restore this and it be up and running?
Example, backup all mentioned from a W2k3 server and restore to W2k8 R2 and it retain all users, groups, permission throughout directory structures etc.?
If so, where can I educate myself on this?
