Hello,
Could you please share the checklist to verify that 2012 Server DC is ready for production. Once we verify that one 2012 DC is ready then we will clone the image to use to deploy other DCs. I just want to make sure that nothing is missing.

For example, verify that there is no errors in the event log, replication is working, etc, update # is in place, DNS service is running, etc

2012 has built in BPAs, including those for DNS and ADDS. As an aside, special considerations must be mad when cloning a DC. It isn't trivial and, in most cases, should not be used as a deployment method.
