    No you cannot install Exchange 2010 Edge server with same server roles, Edge server cannot be a member of domain so when you install all the roles it will by default greyout.

    You need to install it on DMZ zone for Edge server

  • Yes, You must have to install EDGE role in DMZ segment and do edge sync it with HUB transport server so it can have AD LDS (Read only Database) databse into it.

  • As above mentioned, all other Exchange server roles can be installed on the same machine except Edge server. You should deploy it separately.

     

    To deploy Edge server, please refer to the link below:
