this MS document should help:
Q15. If I want to use the bits from an earlier version or edition, what are my options?
If you have Windows Server 2012 Datacenter edition you will have the right to downgrade your bits to any prior version or lower edition.
If you have Windows Server 2012 Standard edition, you will have the right to downgrade your bits to any prior version of Enterprise, Standard or Essentials editions.
The ability to run downgrade bits does not change the licensing or support terms in which you can use the product; the purchased product (Windows Server 2012) rights apply. This means that the license will continue to cover two physical processors and the virtualization rights do not change.
