Failed Log Shipping SQL 2008 r2 DB to SQL 2012

I'm trying to configure logshipping from sql server 2008 r2 (database compatibility level 100) to sql server 2012; however, the setup is failing with this error.

Msg 3180, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
This backup cannot be restored using WITH STANDBY because a database upgrade is needed. Reissue the RESTORE without WITH STANDBY

I thought you can lopshipping from a lower version to a higher version of sql without any issue?

With this kind of error, what exactly should I do?

I think it should be possible.
I the 2012 SQL used for a reporting type scenario? or are you thinking a fail over scenario?

What actually is the command that you are running to get the error message?

Have you tried a NO RECOVERY command?

Not possible.

SQL Books On Line 2012.
STANDBY is also not allowed when a database upgrade is necessary.

Article with some options (example was 2005 to 2008), I assume the same would apply nowadays, 2008 to 2012.
