Simple question. Is is possible to upgrade Active Directory to 2012 R2 Native mode and still leave my Windows 2008 R2 Certificate Authority in place? I'd like to migrate it at a later date.

Technically, there is no longer a "Native Mode" functional level for anything past 2003, but as long as there are no Domain Controllers that are running an OS version lower than 2012 R2, you can raise the functional level to 2012 R2. Certificate Authority OS version doesn't matter to AD Functional Level or depend on it.
