Migration from SBS2003 to Server 2013 & Exchange 2013

Hi Everyone

Please confirm what the procedure is to migrate from SBS2003 to Server 2012 Std Edition.
Apparently this may not be possible and that a new domain needs to be setup altogether?

Regards

Better if you go for brand new Windows 2012 environment and just add new Exchange 2013 directly there
Then you can migrate 2003 mailbox mails from pst backup to Exchange 2013

As Exchange 2013 can't co exist with 2003 Exchange, its not supported scenario
In that case you must 1st introduce Exchange 2007 Service Pack 3 OR Exchange 2010 SP3 in the existing forest, do mailbox migration and you must remove Exchange 2003 on SBS.
Once that removed, you can install Exchange 2013 in co-existence

However you can add 2012 Active directory without any issue in existing 2003 setup if wanted to but s not of use in your case
