    I have been unable to find this online. Can we add a Subordinate CA server running Windows Server 2012 R2 to an existing AD CS infrastructure that is a Windows Server 2008 R2 Root CA?

  • Yes. Although Windows Server 2012 R2 has more AD CS features, it is fine to add to your existing PKI. As with everything you do in your PKI, be mindful of your policies, procedures and configurations.
