Setting up two SBS 2003 Servers (with exchange) on one LAN

Last Modified: 2013-11-30
We currently have a SBS 2003 Server running on the LAN. It handles email for domain1.com.

Over the coming weekend, we will be moving another company into the same building. We have a new SBS 2003 Server waiting for them which I haven't configured in any way yet.

My question is this. How do I setup the network to allow for the second Exchange server for domain2.com

We have a d-Link DSL-504T router which currently forwards all smtp traffic to the 1st SBS server for domain1.com.

Do I just setup another smtp forward for the other domain to the new server.

We have a new HP Procurve 2610-48 which is capable of handling VLANS, although currently we just use the one default vlan. I also have a Draytek 2800 router ready to be put in place if the D-Link router cant do the job.

Any advice or suggestion would be gratefully received.
