I have created a virtual network using VMware ESXi which has an Untangle VM at the network perimeter. The untangle box acts as a VPN/Firewall for my network which consists of an External, Internal and DMZ segments.
When installed the VMWare was allocated localhost.localdomain and the web server in the DMZ has been working fine.
On the Internal segment of the virtual network Im looking to install MS SBS 2008 and during installation the SBS virtual box was set up as SBS1.MyDomain. I have since added three clients to the .MyDomain.
Looking back at what I have done Im now not sure of the interaction between the VMware and the SBS, should they both have the same domain name as they are on the same virtual network? Could someone please explain what would be the norm in this situation?
