domain controller: 192.168.0.110 (static)
dns & dhcp: 192.168.0.110
gateway: 192.168.0.1
able to  join the following:
Windows Server 2012 Standard > server name: dalakes    dalakes.corp.janicelakes.net
ip: 192.168.0.120 (static)
Windows 7 Pro:  client name: taxexp     taxexp.corp.janicelakes.net
ip: 192.168.0.56 (DHCP) same DNS AND gateway

ISSUE: Can not join both Windows 8 Pro and Enterprise to the DC > dcapps.janicelakes.net with the error code 1355.

On Windows 8, uncheck IPv6
Start CMD
ping dcapps
dcapps.corp.janicelakes.net

If you have multiple DNS in Windows 8 client, configure 192.168.0.110 as primary

for the following reason:

exactly as  specified my windows 8 pro and enterprise seamlessly connected and joined the domain controller on Windows Server 2012 Standard under hyper-V. how i wish you would tell me why it was so. is this a bug? what happens now if i revived the ipv6 on my clients?

I am not sure about any buys.
You may go to properties and enable IPv6.

There won't be any problems.
