I'm doing application development work with a Windows 2003 server and Exchange 2007. I've restored a backup of my production machine to the development server and am using it disconnected from the production network. Just a workstation and the server plugged into the same router.
Is there a way to plug the development machine into the same physical network that the production machine is on, but not have it appear in the same logical domain? E.g., if I give it a different IP address (starting with the second set of numbers), will everything else in the network not know about its existence? (There are only 40 devices all on the same 255.255.255.0 subnet).
