I have customer with a brand new shiny SBS 2011 box running Sharepoint 2010.

He has a collection of Web Apps developed for Sharpoint 2013 that is needed for his business.

He can not upgrade the sharepoint 2010 on the SBS 2011 Server as it will break SBS.

Can he install Sharepoint 2013 on another server on the network ?

Can Sharepoint 2010 and 2013 exist happily together on the same domain so long as they are on seperate servers ?

I am no expert in Sharepoint and am unsure what solution to suggest to him.

All feedback appreciated. TIA

they can coexist but each will have its own databases.  If the intention is to migrate then you need to backup SharrePoint databases and perform an attached database upgrade.

Thanks for your help

No he in not migrating  he just needs Sharepoint 2013 for his Webapps

Would Sharepoint 2013 need to be installed on a separate server ?

Yes I have other customers where they run"company web" on the SBS server and full version SQL and SharePoint on a second server and joined to the SBS domain.

Thanks for that Cris

Just to sure - can you confirm if the two Sharepoints are different versions ie 2010 and 2013 ?

It wouldn't matter...in my customer's case the one on SBS was Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0 and on the other Server was Sharepoint 2007.  The point is they are on separate servers and do not interfere with the other one.   They are on their own sites with separate URLs
