It is very likely that page needs rewriting, Samba can now use the 
2012R2 schema (69), as proved by this:

root at dc4:~# ldbsearch -H /var/lib/samba/private/sam.ldb -b 
'cn=Schema,cn=Configuration,dc=samdom,dc=example,dc=com' -s base 
# record 1
dn: CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=samdom,DC=example,DC=com
objectVersion: 69

The problem is that you need a 2008 or 2008R2 in the domain for WMI to 
join a 2012 DC, unless someone knows a workaround.
