Migration from AD 2003 to AD 2012 R2 SP1
I have Windows server 2003 SP2 Active Directory.
Can you please let me know the right procedure to migrate to AD 2012 R2 SP1, on a new server.
Also how will I transfer the DNS and DHCP (which are currently installed on 2003 DC) to the new 2012 DC?

Do you have Exchange also?
Yes, we have exchange 2007 SP1 running on a separate server. I will upgrade it to SP3 RU13 and then it is compatible with AD 2012 R2 SP1. If it is not correct please let me know.
Exchange 2007 has no updates that allow it to properly work with 2012 R2 domain controllers. So for now, you cannot safely do what you want.
As an aside, there is no SP1 for 2012 R2.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
Please see the link below:
Exchange 2007 SP3 is supported with Windows server 2012 R2.
Your are correct on there is no SP1 on Windows 2012 R2, My mistake.
Please, I need help with my initial query.
