I am not really familiar with migration or virtualization so this will be a first for us.

We currently have a 2008 Domain Controller running Exchange.  We want to move it to a 2012 virtual environment on a completely different server and put Exchange on yet another virtual machine on another separate server.

I'm pretty sure the Exchange just needs to be moved separately and doesn't have anything to do with the DC and just follow exchange migration rules.

But I'm not sure how to handle the DC part without breaking the domain link to the machines.

Does anyone know of a link or any information on a step by step process for this or a guideline perhaps?
