Hello everybody. I am going to restore my master, model, msdb, and tempdb from my previous MS sql server 2008 r2 to the new MS SQL Server 2012 r2. Is that possible, or not?
Thanks for your answer!!

The system databases are designed to work with the current version, therefore the sql server 2008 r2 system dbs, work with sql server 2008r2.
To migrate objects , such as jobs, backup history etc, think about scripting these moves to sql 2012

No its not possible to restore system databases of one SQL server version on system database of different version . Hope your destination database is SQL Server 2012. There is no R2 version.
You can restore master database from 2008 r2 as a normal database on 2012 but not on master database of 2012.
