Do I need to do anything to AD before installing server 2012 R2

We do not have any servers running server 2012 R2 in our enviroment and I am getting ready to create the first 2012 R2 server which will not be a domain controller or will just be a standalone server. Do I need to do anything to AD first or can I just install the new server with 2012 R2?
I think I can just install it since it will not be a DC but just wanted to be sure.
