Sub-netting or Routing?

I need to setup another server (Srv2008) on the current network. At the same time I need to keep these to Srv separated from each other ( two different business) so I will create a new forest when I do a DCPROMO on the new Srv. Both Srv will have static IP address of 192.168.1.2 the other 192.168.1.10. ( I understand there are on same subnet)
I have to install programs like Backup exec and Panda Business on both and I see that it will create a problem, b/c when I try to install Panda it say that there is already a Panda Admin Panel install on the network, which is correct.
Here is my question.
Should I give the new Srv and IP address of 192.168.2.3 and use routing on each srv to be able to communicate with each other? Or put the second Srv on a subnet? or by doing the above I"m I doing both? ( I think I am ) ( boht Srv have to NIC cards )
Never done anything like this before ,so I like to get some fee back on the matter.
Thank you all...

If these are two separate businesses you want to keep them apart. So use two different subnets and separate the two by using a router or set up vlans if you happen to have a layer 3 switch.
That way you can control what traffic to allow between the two much easier.

Create seperate VLAN on Layer 3 Switch.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Ok,

What kind of router? Are you using it already for anything? How many interfaces does it have?

It's a Cisco router,RV220W

While I know I can do a VLan ( never done it before ) I like to subnet the network that I currently have
192.168.2.1

Hi, I'm still here :)

I think you'll need both. Create a vlan for each subnet (vlan10=192.168.1.0 and vlan20 = 192.168.2.0). The RV220W has only two ports, inside and outside (though the inside is a 4-port switch) so to provide two networks on the inside, use vlans.
