2008 Domain Adding Server 2012 R2 DC

I currently have 2 Server 2008 SP2 domain controllers.  I would like to add a 3rd DC.  I would like to make that 3rd DC server 2012 R2.

My question is do I need to run ADPEP and FORESTPREP for 2012 or can I just run DCPROMO and promote the 2012 server to DC?

I will not be moving an of the fsmo roles to the 2012 server at this time.  It will just be an additional DC.

In the process of running dcpromo, you will be asked to run those. Just follow that.

Server 2012 will do a adprep with domainprep and forestprep automatically by dcpromo.
