Windows Server 2012R2 Essentials

I looking for cheapest solution to upgrade my company domain. Actually we are using 1 DC with Windows Server 2003R2 and 1 DC with Windows Server 2008R2. I'm wondering if it is possible to join Windows Server 2012R2 as a member server or DC for existing forest/domain ( Functionality level 2003 ) ?

You can join the essentials product to an existing domain, but not as a member server. It will be a DC, and it will need to take over all FSMO roles to comply with the licensing requirements of that particular product.
