How to create an Active Directory Server in Server 2012

I have an existing Active Directory  setup on a Server 2008 box, but i want to setup a new Active directory  on a 2012 box. my ADUC replicates to a 2012 DC server, but i have never built a server with active directory so i am trying to see if anyone can tell me or point me in the direction  of instructions on creating  a Active  Directory  server on Server 2012. and how to get the replicated info from the DC it is replicate back to the new server. NOTE: I am leaving up the 2008 server up until i have the 2012 up an running. Thank you

The AD is tightly bound to the domain, so you get both together. If it is a domain controller, AD gets sync'd automatically.
