Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1. Can i install AD, Exchange, BES in a box? - Yes you can but not a good practise

2. If possible all three on a different box if not then - AD and Exchange on one and BES on second

BES is only supported installed on the same server as Exchange when it is an SBS server. Full product it isn't supported.
I wouldn't install BES on to a domain controller as that will give you problems with permissions.

the SBS is the only way you can install all of them on one box. I agree with Sembee2 here. I would not try to squeeze BES on the same machine...
AD+Exchange get along well, BES you can run in a Hyper-V environment though
