Setting up two domains for testing

Hello,

I setup two domains for testing, and I am wondering if I might have problems with the way I setup the domain names. Here is an example. For domain 1, I called it MyTestDomain and I did not create a .local. Instead, the domain it is MyTestDomain.net.

I also created another domain. It is called MyTestDomain.local.

So, I have one domain that is MyTestDomain.net and another that is MyTestDomain.local.

By the way, the actual domain name is different but I am using MyTestDomain for the example.

If it is OK to have two domains like this, what will happen if I install Exchange server on both domains? The domain called MyTestDomain.local will be able to receive incoming mail from MyTestDomain.com.

In the end, one test domain will be able to receive messages from MyTestDomain.net and the other domain will be able to receive messages from MyTestDomain.com.

Should I start over and have two completely different domain names, or is what I have setup good?

Thanks,
John

Why do you have 2 domains?  If this is for exchange you can just add an accepted domain in exchange for MyTestDomain.local on the MyTestDomain.net and it will recieve both as long as the MX records are pointed properly.

If these are 2 seperate businesses then yes it will work and they will send to each other.  I guess what is your overall objective?

I need test environments for different exchange servers and server versions, testing trusts, etc.

Should be no problem there since they are both different domains with the .net and .local
