Two domains within the same IP range
Posted on 2014-04-05
We are in the process of implementing MS Dynamics AX and a requirement by our consultants is to have a test environment. We can build this environment and let it use our live AD setup however I wish to avoid this and keep the production setup only for the Live Dynamics install.
The quesiton I have is, since we are installing this test environment on virtual machines and hosting it on a virtual server (HyperV) that is on the current live domain, when we install a virtual machine and promote it to a domain controller to host the demo environment (requirement for Dynamics) will both the demo Active Directory and production Active Directory setups interfere with each other on any note?
I'm a little worried about having both domains running.
(Separate IP range can be used but would make things extremely complicate) (Restricted to only local VM to VM traffic can be used but the servers need outside access)
