As you know, Windows Server 2012 is completely new operating system, To create domain controller in Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2, don’t try DCPROMO command, because DCPROMO command went to vacation after Windows Server 2008 R2  hahaha… yes DCPROMO command is no more, It has been deprecated,

In order to make the windows server 2012 domain controller we will install ADDS (Active Directory Domain Services) role from the server manager on Windows Server 2012.

First we will change the server name let say server2012dc and the IP address 10.10.21.1 (try to avoid using default 192.168.0.1)

INSTALLING AD DS ROLE
