A second 'test' RADIUS server on a Windows 2008 R2 domain

PotreroHill asked
I want to test a wireless controller and access point combo from another manufacturer.
I don't want to mess with the active NPS config and its RADIUS controller, so I'm thinking of spinning up a new one on a different DC. I can't seem to find any info on this scenario. Could this cause a problem?
Environment: Windows 2008R2 functional domain, NPS using only RADIUS services, no health policies, etc.

absolutely no problem.
You point different wireless controllers towards each of the different Radius servers. Other than that, no probls


Thanks Jacob!
Logically I figured it shouldn't be an issue because, as you state, controllers or APs are added into the RADIUS config. I just wanted to make sure there wasn't some 'under the hood' issue with multiple NPS instances on a single Domain.
