    Hi @Richkm ,

    If you want to install two separate standalone primary sites in the same infrastructure, what is the reason behind that? Just to remind you, a standalone primary site can support up to 150,000 Windows devices, more details:

    Yes, you can have two PS but with different site codes. You have to take into account if you want to use the client push installation, you must publish your CM site on your domain. Make attention also for the boundaries and boundary groups to avoid any further conflict.

    No, You can not share a server to host CM. It is NOT recommend to have CM installed on a DC.

    What scenario are you trying to address here?

    Also, what do you mean by "DC"? In the Microsoft world that typically means "Domain Controller", but I suspect you actually mean "data center".
