Hi SP experts,

Q: Can multiple SharePoint 2010 farms be created on single windows 2008 R2 server?
Q: SharePoint 2010 internet site 3 tiers: 1 web front end server + 2 application server + 1 SQL server = how many SharePoint 2010 Intersite licenses do I need to get?

Thanks,
-Rick

I don't believe you can create multiple farms on the same server, specifically due to the fact that the installation files are always going to be in the same location (/web server extensions/14) and they aren't differentiated...so you would end up overwriting one install over the other.  On top of that, the products and technology wizard wouldn't know which farm to manipulate when it ran, amongst other things.

For your licensing question, check this out:

It might help you figure out what the total cost would be, or you could contact Microsoft Licensing.
