Ip addresses for the new domain

Hi,
I have installed 2 dc's and 1 for the child domain
>Fsteam.com
  >> ChennaiFs.Fsteam.com

ip's 10.10.1.10 DomainDC1

10.10.1.11 DomainDC2   Has secondary Domain controller of the primary domain
10.10.1.12 ChennaiDC1  Has Primary Domain Controller of the primary Domain
10.10.1.13 Exchange2007   Exchange 2007
10.10.1.14 ChennaiDc1   Is a primary Domain controller Has the child domain

Can i have the same range of ip's for all these machines?
Any opinions please.All are static ip's
Regards
Sharath

Should i have 2 DNS instance in both the Primary and child domains.?
For a test i have all these machines connected to 1 switch and same ip range.
Is there something i am doing wrong

No problem with this at all.  There isn't any need for additional DNS servers.

i.e.

2x DNS/DC servers in Primary Domain.  Make both DCs Global Catalogs as well.
1x DC server in Secondary Domain

Note that it would still be worth having a second DC in the child domain, as otherwise it lacks redundancy.

Can the ip's for my Primary and secondary domains be in the same range.?
So you mean that the primary and secoundary domain can just have 1 DNS server

Yes, there is no reason why they can't be in the same subnet/range.  I would recommend 2 DNS servers for redundancy (can be installed on AD servers), but 1 is all that you need for correct function.
