Two forests on the same LAN
Posted on 2010-09-01
Hi, we have a small office with one LAN that includes a single forest with a single domain.
We are hosting a conference next week, and we are setting up demo machines for our product. We want to create a unique logon for each person that registers for the conference.
I was thinking about just using DCPromo and creating a new forest, and then just giving the machines in this new forest static IPs. I can then just use DCPromo to remove the forest when the conference is over.
I'm a little paranoid about this and worried that this could affect our current active directory forest.
Is there anything to be worried about? Any precautions I should take?
