Yes, of course.

You will probably want to manage that server from your Server 2012 Management Console, though -- to do that, follow this blog post:

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

The DC is staying as Server 2012 Standard I think we might have installed domain level 2012 -this will be an issue then right with server 2008r2 as a file server?

My suggestion open another question makes it more neat when getting replies. Also dont forget that SP3 on BEX 2012. Will save you a lot of hassle

Let's try this again--- please read what I wrote above --- the idea here at EE is that you need to select the comment which provided the solution.  My last comment did nothing of the sort.

Therefore, I am going to request that a moderator re-open this question so you can close it correctly.

Thank you.
