I have a client who had to setup an ADCS (AD Certificate Service) for 
VMWare Horizon. It has been set up on a member server joined to a 
Samba-AD domain and it does work properly (at least for that use case) 
for auto enrollment.

They have a separate CA for the other stuff (user certificates, https 
server certificates, etc.), so I cannot say for every use cases.
