Okay this is from a newbie on VLANs.
We currently have a client that has this situation going on.
There are two seperate entities to their network and it is all under a class C subnet (let's say they are using 192.168.241.x). It is one flat network and we are completely running out of IP addresses. Our master DC is 192.168.241.5
We were going to set this up as a class B network but one monkey wrench was thrown into the mix. They have a PACS system and in order to change the IP address on it the PACS technician was going to charge about $5,000 to do this (that includes flying up here to fix this, motel, etc.) and they would not give us the steps to do it.
So our next idea is to have one entity on its own VLAN.
Both entities are on the same Active Diirectory domain and both entities access files on the same servers.
We have switches in place that can handle VLANs and are looking at doing 192.168.242.x for the separate entity. Our question is how do we get the servers to recognize the new VLAN and have the PCs hook into the domain?
Any step-by-step answers or pointing in the right direction would be great.
We will not be able to start this until Tuesday, April 5th.
