I've read the solution on another question, I am wondering if I can connect without using the domain? Right now a router is providing DHCP, and it really needs to stay that way. They are just using the server for file sharing.

No, you can't. Essentials will work with DHCP on the router, but it does so by using a beacon client agent that properly supports domain functions. That client does not support XP. So the combination of XP, 2012 Essentials, and DHCP on the router is abdeadly one. It won't work as expected and users WILL complain.

So what is the best way to proceed? Clients are on a 2003 SBS right now.
