I have two different companies trying to share the same cable plant.
Each company has their own Internet connection and router.
Each company has their own workstations and printers.
So far I have been able to keep them truly apart simply by using my physical cabling routes.
Until now – please reference my attached picture. I now need to add a workstation on a location where I cannot split the cabling.
In my campus we have a Fiber link between the Gigabit Switches because we are in separate buildings.
If I try to set this up – I feel that one of the two companies simply needs to NOT utilize DHCP at all, as we do not want to share anything and of course we cannot have dual DHCP providers..
I know this might look like a basic question to some of you – so let me know if you think there are serious drawbacks to this or not. I am very open to other ideas as well
