Hello,
How different is RODC from writable Domain Controller in terms of validating it is working as it is suppose to? WHat are the additional validation tasks that I need to add to my checklist for verifying that RODC 2012 was successfully installed and authenticating users in its remote site.  Thank you.

I don't think there are any really.  I would still use the command line, and run DCDIAG with maybe some additional switches.  Perhaps also look in the Sites and services and make sure it is being listed correctly.  Also your repadmin tools.

The best way I know to ground level check, is to login at a remote site computer, run the SET command and look for the LOGONSERVER=\\SUPERSECRETSERVERNAME.
Any problems, and check AD Sites and Services.
Also, the ground level check the RO part, use your ADUC MMC, and connect directly to the RODC.  It should let you view, but not change.
