Actually we can see a good market response to the new Microsoft Server flagships, Windows Server 2012 and Exchange 2013.
Migration projects are still ahead and probably will not die in 2013.
The following table shows the readiness of the Quest migration tool suite and answers the question whether the tool can be installed on a Windows Server 2012, whether it can migrate Active Directory to Windows 2012 and mail systems to Exchange 2013.
Microsoft did not release a new version of ADMT yet (the most actual version is still 3.2), that is fully compliant with Windows 2012 functional mode domains, nor can you install ADMT 3.2 on a Windows Server 2012 member server. Actually, a migration from a Windows 2008 R2 domain to a Windows 2012 domain with 2012 functional level can neither be achieved by using the native tool (ADMT) nor Quest Migration Manager for Active Directory.
