2nd SBS 2008 on same network or different network
Posted on 2011-09-16
I have a second SBS 2008 license and I want to set up a second SBS server, essentially identical to my current server so that I can practice code and learn stuff without impacting our server. Do I need to put that second SBS on a separate network? A second router? I am essentially ignorant, so idiot proof the answers. Thanks!
Further clarification. The current SBS is on a switching router (I think that is what it is called, a switch of some sort) LAN with 5 workstations on site. I have a second router around because I was thinking if the practice SBS server would cause conflict on the LAN, maybe I could set it up on the second router, separated from the LAN?
Is there a simpler way to do what I want to do? Set up a second version of my server and apps so I can dink around and learn stuff?
