Hi guys, I hope you are all well and can assist.

We are a company that is a 2003/2008 AD environment, wishing to go to Windows 2012.

I am tasked with gathering the requirements for getting us to 2012.

Any help on this process would be greatly appreciated.

Different sections such as:

Functional requirements

Non-functional requirements

Use Cases

Etc

Would be appreciated.

Thank you.

You can  install a windows 2012 member server in your current domain. But to install a windows 2012 as domain controller  you probably need to upgrade the domain and forest functional levels

Is this new servers going to be physical or virtual.If it s physical then you need to check with your manufacturer whether 2012 is supported. You might need to upgrade the bios.
If its a virtual then  you should be able to install without any issues
