    The DAG can exist on a server with the other roles fine.
    To replicate the data you will need to use a DAG though. The host must be either Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise or Windows 2012.

      If you ever want to use Windows NLB for the CAS role (which you try to avoid to where feasible) you then wouldn't be able to mix a WNLB CAS role member with a DAG member as WNLB and clustering (needed by a DAG) are not compatible on the same server.
