Setting up a Lion Server in Windows 2008 network

Hi.

At my work we have a windows 2008 server network for our windows machines. The IT department at our comunity is in charge of the windows server. Our department has bought iPads for the workers and they have bought a Lion server to administrate the iPads and the Macs on our network.

The scenario is like this:

The windows server is set up to administrate the windows machines on a local network with ip range: 10.16.142.x and 10.16.172.x with default gateway 10.16.x.x and a proxy server on 10.0.x.x.

The windows server has a network card for each network range (Two network cards)

Now, I got the job of setting ut a Lion Server on the 10.16.142.x range to administrate the macs and the iPads. We have been testing Filewave to administrate the iPads and everything works as i should in a testnetwork physically on it own network.

The lion server is set ut with DNS and Open Directory, but no DHCP.
When I ping the server, when connected in the 10.16.142.x network I get answers but Filewave is not working and I can not get in contact with the macs on the Lion server.

I am not so sure this is good practise in networking, but how can I set up two nameservers in the network, one for windows and one Lion server for macs and both beeing able to connect to the internett, through the proxy server and making Filemaker work?

Thanks in advanse for any help...

You cannot and should not have two separate and DNS servers on your network.

You should integrate your Mac Server into your AD infrastructure.

OK.

How to I integrate the Lion server into the AD infrastructure? Do I connect the Open Directory to the AD and get the user information via LDAP? Sorry for being green, but I got this problem last week without asking for it.

Yes, that would be my recommendation to you.  Once OD is up and your Mac is bound to AD, you should have read access to AD objects and you can drag/drop the items into OD.
