Hi guys.
Hope you are well and can help.

I would like to know if there are any improvements in the way you rename domain controllers in windows 2012, as opposed earlier versions of windows.

Any help greatly appreciated.

This was originally for 2008/2008R2 but it will apply to 2012 just the same.  It tells you what to do and what to change.

Renaming a domain controller is straightforward. Always has been. Although some server applications don't like their own server name changing. But if you follow best
 practices, you aren't running other applications on your DCs.

Renaming a domain, on the other hand, was never easy. And no 2012 brings no enhancements to this very rare scenario.
