All our servers and clients are in which is the registered subnet in AD sites and services.

We are thinking of creating another VLAN for the clients,, and leaving the servers in vlan1,

There will be routing between the 2 VLAN's via a Cisco L3 switch, which will also be configured with IP helper for DHCP addressing for the VLAN2 subnet.

My question is, will the clients in be able to authenticate against the DC's on and Do I need to change anything in AD Sites and Services to reflect that the clients will be on a different subnet?

Our DNS servers are on the DC's. My second question is if internal DNS will be affected by this change as well?
