My collegue was asked to install a 2012 server as a Member server and use it as the Enterprise Root Certificate Authority server on their 2008 R2 AD environment.  Is there any issues and/or problems that you are aware of in this kind of scenario?  Any suggestions/tips on best practice to follow?

a can add to that, no problems. But remember to add license or else you'll get stuck with one--week CRLs

But you should seriously look into a two-tier setup with an offline ROOT and a subordinate issuing server, where the offline root is not domain joined
