How to set up an autonomous domain within another domain
Posted on 2012-08-15
We have a WAN network in the 10.x.x.x range. It is a single domain. Lets call it "main.com"
I want to create another domain for testing purposes. I want this domain (lets call it "test.com") to be in the 172.16.x.x range but resides in main.com.
I want, test.com to be totally isolated from main.com. The only relationship it has with main.com is that it uses its hardware/networking resources such as SAN resources, ESXi farm to create hosts and its switching infrastructure to route traffic. As far as test.com is concerned, main.com is just the internet.
The reason I want this setup is to set an environment for testing/training that is isolated and can be a test case for prod later on.
Any help, pointers or direction will be much appreciated.
