I am setting up a SBS 2003 R2 server for a client at my office.  There IP addresses at their office are 10.0.0.x.  My IP addresses are 192.168.1.x.
If I change my IP addreses to 10.0.0.x and setup the sbs server at my office, will I run into any unexprected issues with DNS?

Thanks

If i get what your trying to do, is build a SBS 2003 RC2 install, and use one of your machines for test?

As long as it is seperate from your network and if your testing with a client machine you will have to join it to the new domain regardless for testing. Just setup the NIC to get its IP from DHCP (New server install)

Basically, that is what I want to do.  I am going to change my IP addresses at my office (including the router-DHCP) to the same as the client.  Install SBS and backu, virus apps, etc.  I am going to add users and setup the shares but not add client computers until I take it to the client location.

So, it sounds like I should be okay to do that.  I should be able to connect it to their network and be good-to-go.  Am I missing anything?

Thanks

Ahh I get you, at the moment you have no Server(DC) at your office? Using your router to deal with DHCP?

The server will be fine on its own. As long as all their machines are using DHCP, then when you go to add them be sure to use http://Servername/connectcomputer on each of the workstations.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

So when I take it to the client office I should only need to add their computers.  The DNS that will configured at my office will be okay at their office when I connect it.
BTW, at their office they have a Windows 2000 server but it is NOT a DC.  Connecting the SBS server to their network should not cause any problems even if the original server is connected, right?

Thanks

If its not a DC then it shouldnt be an issue as SBS can only be a PDC.

All you would have to do it join the 2000 Server to the domain.
