Two Domains on Same Network--best practices
Posted on 2007-10-18
i have a client with two servers (SBS2003 SP2) and domains on the same network/subnet (on the same floor of a building). currently a cisco 2800 series router is the gateway, dns and dhcp host. this kind of works, but has been causing some issues i believe with Active Directory, etc. i'm used to having the domain controller use DHCP and DNS.
my question is, with this situation--2 servers/domains and a cisco 2800 gateway--what is the best way to set this up? i'm sure there's different solutions so i'm interested in your opinion. an example of an issue i have is that sometimes group policy is only partially applied when logging in, and when trying to add a new system to the domain via the web console (used with SBS2003) it says that it can't find the list of computers and to make sure that the gateway router uses the domain server as the main DNS...but i have two domain servers :-)
any advice appreciated.
