I don't see why. I know I can have multiple on unix boxes. Keep in mind however, that when I had about twelve windows databases, each one had its own box. Except for the client 'NLS_LANG', the character set is defined inside the database, and so should be independent. Now you just need another opinion or to for confirmation.

Subject: multiple character sets on windows X64 server  

All of our databases were created with character set WE8ISO8859P1. It now appears that we must create a new database specifying AL32UTF8 on the create database command.

Is there a problem of having multiple databases on the same Windows X64 server with different charactersets?
