We have a W2K3 DC and the rest of the DCs are in W2k8.  The older DC is there for a legacy apps.  

The functional level across our DCs are still in W2K3.

we need to build a new W2012 domain and setup domain trust.  Is this possible?

Does any of you knows a good article the step-by-step to do list?

Thanks.

I dont understand the reason for legacy apps this is a DC not an app/member server? This should not matter. You should be able to add a 2012 DC into your domain as the FFL/DFL is at 2003. But in any case every business has its reasons.

However you can create a new domian with Server 2012 and create a forest trust between the domains without issue.
