Currently I am working with a client who has an existing win2k webserver with the following config:
They want to add a new Windows 2003 webserver with 192.168.0.12 as the IP and the same subnet and GW. When I try to configure windows 2003 this way, it comes back warning that "The default gateway is not in the same network segment" as the server's IP address.
Of course, the warning makes perfect sense. So that leads to two questions:
1) Why does the windows 2k configuration work? BTW, there's no fancy routing confiured that I can determine. It just works (like magic).
2) Is there anyway to configure the windows 2003 server to exist with that IP and GW? I'd rather not have to do the reconfiguration required if I change the GW routers IP address.
