    Two ways really - to add a new 2012 R2 server to the old domain, clean it up as you see fit, and everything will be there ready, or you can migrate across using something like the ADMT - Download Active Directory Migration Tool version 3.2 from Official Microsoft Download Centre

    Check this link ADMT Guide: Migrating and Restructuring Active Directory Domains

    It appears that when migrating between forests, objects are preserved in the source.
