Migration from server 2003 and exchange 2003 to server 2012R2 and Exchange 2013

Last Modified: 2015-03-03
Hi All

I have a client which is running 2 windows server 2003 domain controllers, one of these also runs exchange 2003, I would like to ask if someone can let me know do I need to stage my upgrade path with Windows server 2008R2 before going to Server 2012R2? I will also be going to Exchange 2010 before I go to Exchange 2013 as I understand this is the best practice and that there is no upgrade path from Exchange 2003>2013 without first going to 2010?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
