Hi ,

 

Active Directory-based activation is implemented as a role service that relies on AD DS to store activation objects. Active Directory-based activation requires that the forest schema be updated by adprep.exe on a computer running Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2012, but after the schema is updated, older domain controllers can still activate clients.
Step-by-step configuration : Active Directory- Based activation on below link .
I hope above information can be useful for you .
