We just got a new windows server 2012. We replaced with a 2003 server. Under the old 2003 i had active directory for users and computers snap in. I need to add active directory for users and computers under the new server 2012.  In this domain, we are only local administrators.  We just want the snap in to check users and group for our domain and other domains.

on the 2012 server, you would need to go to add roles and features, then go through the wizard to features, expand remote server administrative tools, role administrative tools,  expand AD DS and AD LDS and check all boxes except services for NIS and AD LDS snap-in

then you will have ADUC tools available

Please clarify - did you add the 2012 server as a domain controller already or are you asking how to do that?  Or are you asking where Active Directory Users and Computers tool is?  If so, that's in the Administrative Tools part of Control Panel and available once you make the machine a DC.  (Possibly if you just add the role without even promoting to DC).

First, add Windows server 2012 to the domain with domain administrator
Second, install Active Directory Domain services role and restart the server
