Two SBS servers on same network?
Posted on 2006-11-02
My client has an SBS 2003 network, but also has link to the company next door who have an NT4 network. My client accesses a shared folder on that server. It was easy to establish the link. The NT4 server has an IP address of 192.168.0.100 the clients in there have fixed IP addresses. So I assigned the SBS box with an internal IP address of 192.168.0.2 and allowed the DHCP server to assigned addresses in that segment. Everything is working fine.
However, the next door people are shorlty upgrading to an SBS Box. I wondering about problems now. Is it possible to have two SBS domains on the same network segment? I can imagine problems with DHCP also. We could spilt things so that each server allocates addresses within a certain range, but how can you dicatate which server a client requests and address from.
Are there any other problems I am unaware of?
