  • Do you want to move the site server to a new forest/domain? If so: that's not supported and does not work.

  • Possibility for what?

    Migration only works from ConfigMgr 2007 SP2 or from the same version of ConfigMgr 2012 thus will not be able to migrate from 2012 to 2012 R2. You will need to upgrade your 2012 site to 2012 R2 first and then perform the migration. The TechNet docs clearly show this: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg699364.aspx

    ANd, as Torsten pointed out, if you are simply planning on moving the existing site server, that isn't supported and won't work either.
