Hi, I needed to move an Application server and database to an isolated location with no network connection except locally. The application server relies on Active Directory for logins. This was what I was planning
Firewall <--> Switch <--> ESXi 5.1host with VMs (DC and App server) + Physical DB server
The subnet will be kept the same and the DC along with the ESXi host and Physical DB server will be moved offsite and cut off from the network and internet access. All of the server IPs will be kept the same and will be in same subnet. Have the following questions regarding this:
1. Will the login to the app work in this scenario?
2. There will be a need to reconnect this network back to the domain in a few months. What if any gotchas should I be thinking about
