Setting up 2 SBS 2k3 domain controllers on the same network
Posted on 2005-04-18
Here is my senario:
I have 2 companies sharing a network (i.e. hardware and internet connection), each company has their own file server. I am interested in setting up SBS 2k3 on each server (one copy for each company), thus resulting in 2 domain controllers and 2 distinct domains on the same network.
My question is,
1) Is it possible to setup an SBS network in this fashion? From what I have read, it seems possible, but no level of "trusts" can be setup between the 2 domains. Is this true?
2) If this is possible, but the trusts cannot exist, can I at the very least, perform basic file sharing between workstations on one domain and files stored in a share on the other?
Also, before it is suggested, I already have the copies of sbs 2k3 (one of which is already in use), so im not interested in changing to Windows Server 2003. All I need is to have the 2 domains reside on the same network hardware with the abiltity to access files shared on both networks.
