two domains on the same flat network
Posted on 2012-03-14
We have an office with an sbs 2003 domain controller, we will call this domain1 and the server name is server01. We are closing another office but want to move it's server, another domain controller for that office to our current location. This is an SBS2011 box and the server name is server01. This is domain2.
So can we have the two domain controllers for our two different domains run on the same network. Domain1 is the SBS2003 box, server01.local.domain1 and it's ip address is 192.168.1.2. We add Domain2, SBS20011 box, server01.local.domain2 to our existing network and make it's ip 192.168.1.5. Of course different workstations are members of each domain.
Will we have any issues as a result of running two different domain controllers over the same network? Will the server names cause a problem since they both are server01 but specific to their own domains? We don't need the two to talk to each other, just use the same infrastructure.
