Multiple Domains on Single DC?



Is it possible to host multiple domains on a single
domain controller?

Perhaps I do not even need to do this. I am trying to
have 2 email domains (, I want to be able to have a different
user set for each domain and be able to administer these
accounts easily, like from within Active Directory if

Thank you in advance.

Hello Eric,

That wold cost losts of problems to try this and I do not recommend it.

The best way to do this is to use VM Ware or Virtual PC, they both allow
you to run multiple operating systems at the same time on the same PC
without rebooting or partitioning your disk.
