Microsoft tool to check my 2003 domain for upgrade

Hi Experts,

Microsoft has a tool to install on my old domain and check all roles and features.
So I can check whether an update is possible or not.
Can you show me this tool ?
Watch Question

there is a command that will tell you how To display a list of all installed roles and features on the server, pipe the output of the preceding command into the Where-Object cmdlet and use Where-Object to filter out everything except roles and features whose InstallState property is equal to Installed:

Get-WindowsFeature -ComputerName SEA-SRV-1 | Where-Object InstallState -eq Installed

You can narrow your results even further by using the –name parameter of the Get-WindowsFeature cmdlet to select only roles and features that begin with “Print” like this:

Get-WindowsFeature -Name Print* -ComputerName SEA-SRV-1 | Where-Object InstallState -eq Installed
Please replace SEA-SRV-1 with your server name.
Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT)

I don't think there is a MS tool for this. However, you can run the adprep/forestprep and adprep /domainprep commands.

I hope you are planning to introduce a 2012 server? if so, you can install the 2012 server on the existing domain and made the new server as DC and perform the migrations etc..

Hope this helps.
