Current setup: One AD domain with one ADFS server, and one ADFS proxy server. This ADFS setup is used for employees with an email domain of abc.com to access CRM. We would like to setup AD authentication for other employees in our company to access a different application, and their email domain is cde.com. The current ADFS server is setup with a certificate for the abc.com email domain.

My question is should I build an ADFS connection on the current server with cde.com, should I build an additional server and create an ADFS farm, or should I build an additional server but not in a farm (since the email domains are different)?

Thanks,
Bill

If these users are in the same Domain/Forest, the Email domain doesn't really matter so much. The certificate you have is still valid, you would just need to make sure the trust relationship between the new application and the ADFS server uses the URL on the certificate. For the most part, that certificate is just used for encrypting the connection to ADFS's HTTPS portal, so it doesn't normally get used for the actual ADFS functions. You can use the same ADFS server for both applications and email domains without a problem, it's just a more complex setup that requires you to include rules to exclude users that don't have the proper alias from connecting to the application they aren't supposed to use.
