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:

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.
