Hi Experts,

How many domains can be hosted in an Exchange server 2010 ? In this case Active Directory service also installed on the same host. If it's possible, is there any limitations on this regards ?

Any support would be highly appreciated.

There is no maxium limit,
    --> But more domain means, more load on RAM.
    --> More certificate cost, as even if you go for SAN certificate, you can t add more than   10  fields to SAN.
    --> You may do trick by configuration of IIS redirection for 'AutoDiscovery' to reduce certificate cost.

I just need to know whether we can manage desperate domains in the same Active Directory/Exchange server ?  Granting individual OWA to to any domains respectively.

When you say domains i assume its SMTP domains and your speaking of email flow. So no additional certs .. email flow would be as usual and adding Domains doesnt mean email-flow would increase until more users are added.

Whats spoken above in regards to Cert is more of AD domain and not sure how RAM would be affected in case of increase of STMP or AD domain

Thanks for the comments, I have one domain already operational in this server say www.domain1.com and now I need to add second domain in to the same server www.domain2.com. Both domains should operates like two separate email services.

Is this possible ?
And can I provide all the features respectively for each domain such as OWA ?

you are looking for something that used to be called a 'Tenanted' system where a single server looks after separate domains that are not aware of each other. It was a bit naff previously, but 2010 SP2 upwards makes it quite easy.

You need to be on SP2+ for Exchange to do it properly, but you can use the new Address book policy feature to achieve this.
