I want to generate two .chm files from the sandcastle configuration files. Is that possible to do from the build server.

Or else can we generate two .chm files with one sandcastle file, with different names.

The help project can only produce one CHM file per build.  If building from the command line or a build server, you can override project properties using the /p command line option which will allow you to do two builds and supply different filenames, titles, etc. See the Building Projects Outside the GUI topic for more information.

However, if all you are doing is changing the filename, why not just have your build script copy the one output CHM file to the other name?
