Install Exchange 2013 in test network

I am installing Exchange 2013 in my test network, this test network is still on the productiion network....just on test ESXi 5.1 host.
I did not join the test server/exchange 2013 to the production domain.
Wil this cause any issue with the production exchange 2010?

I should clarify. If you create a Test domain, you should make sure to have the DC you create on a completely different domain. Any connection with your production domain when installing Exchange 2013 will cause the domain prep operations to run and modify your Active Directory schema.
