I have two SFMC instances as below,

  1. SFMC Core tenant (with only 1 BU) -- Existing
  2. SFMC Enterprise 2.0 -- NEW

So our SFMC Code tenant is connected to a Sales cloud instance via Marketing Cloud Connector. I wish to connect the new SFMC instance [Enterprise 2.0] also to the same Sales cloud.

IS THIS TYPE OF configuration possible?
(Tried to illustrate via diagram as below) enter image description here

If, yes do you see any pro/cons!

Marketing Cloud Connect is a managed package that you install once per Sales Cloud Org. It can connect to one SFMC tenant as a whole ("standard setup") or to several BUs in one SFMC tenant individually ("SFMC Multi-Org setup"). SFMC Multi-Org does not refer to "multiple SFMC tenants", but to "Multiple connected BUs in the same tenant".

So: Your setup is not supported. MC Connect cannot be installed twice per Sales Cloud Org to connect to two separate SFMC tenants.

  • Finally! ... Thank you @Jonas Lamberty for sharing the above details and additionally explaining the concept of 'Multi-Org'... It not only helped me, might help others understand this tricky concept. Jul 22, 2020 at 8:37

Multi-Org is an Enterprise 2.0 account configuration.

Multi-org doesn’t support connections for a single business unit to multiple Sales or Service Cloud orgs, or business units of multiple Enterprise 2.0 accounts to the same org.

  • Hi @zuzannamj thank you very much for sharing the above details. However, I am aware of above configuration, and I think I was NOT clear of my query. So have added a diagram of what I am trying to achieve! .... Hope I am clear on my question this time... I want to connect 2 TENANTS (not just BUs) to a common Sales cloud Org Jul 22, 2020 at 7:54
