I currently have 3 domain controllers all Running either Server 2008 and/or Server 2008 R2.  I will be installing and promoting 3 new Server 2012 R2 Domain controllers.  I am a bit confused as to how to prep the domain to get ready for this.

Some say the dcpromo wizard upgrades the domain automatically, and some say before introducing the new servers, run the command line prep utilities.....

What is the proper way to do this......
