How to join a windows 2012 hyper v core server to virtual dc

I am deploying a new server with server 2012 core installed running hyper v. I will have to virtual win 2k12 servers running. One a DC, and DNS and dhcp. The second a file and print server. How to do I join the physical 2012 core to the domain when the virtual dc seats on the physical machine?

The same way you do a physical DC. It doesn't change.

i understand it the same method as joining any other machine to the domain, however i will need to restart the phyiscal box running windows server 2012 core with hyper v. Do i shut down my virtual DC that is stored on the phyiscal box before restarting phyiscal win 2k12 core server?

no need to as the virtual machines will go into save mode and then resume on power-up if you've set the machines that way (the default)

As a rule we don't join the guest's domain when we are deploying a standalone Hyper-V.

Since it is Core you can Start PowerShell at CMD and:

Add-Computer -Domain Domain.local -Credential Domain\Administrator -OUPath "OU=Servers,OU=Computers,OU=MyBusiness,DC=Domain,DC=Domain" -Restart

Drop the OUPath part if you want it to land in the Computers container instead of a specific OU.
