Best Practices moving from SBS2003 to Server 2012 R2 Standard

We Just took on a new client that is running SBS2003 as the DC and they also have a VMware Server Running 4 guests one of them Is the secondary domain controller.
There are around 9 users on the domain, and we would like to know if it will be easier to just create a new Domain or go through the whole process of backing up their profiles and adding them to the new domain. then restoring their profiles.

If we do go with a new Domain what would be the easiest way to setup the Workstations without having to recreate a profile on the workstations. Is there any freeware out there that will help with this issue.

No problem.   Definitely test with one user/machine.. I've done it this way numerous times for small offices.
