Hello

Not a question of migration, but what can be done with what is available.  Can a 2003 CA issue certificates to 2008 servers.  I expect so, just wanted to confirm it with an expert.

Yes, a certificate is not windows version specific.
It depends what type of certificate you need.  You would need to make sure that the certificate signing request has all the parameters, attributes that are required by the service/user/purpose for which it will be used.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Need to use FIPS compliance.  So servers need a remote desktop certificate (assuming that's a server certificate ?) and client need a client certificate ?  current CA is on a DC!

Ok, so you need an RDS/gateway certificate.  Then you need user certificates.
If the users are domain users, you can have users and systems auto enroll. (GPO)
For non domain users, the options are either the user generates a CSR on their side and provide it to you for signing. Or you create a complete user certificate and provide it to them.
