SBS 2011 Local IP Addressing

Hi all,

I have to install an SBS2011 network alongside a workgroup network that has an old UNIX production control software and server. The UNIX server will be retired over a period of a couple of months.

The current local IP address range is 132.147.10. (1-100) and the client local IPs have to be static to work with the software.

Can I install the SBS server on the same network range and switch using the unused addresses EG 132.147.10. (101-254) or must I use local private IP’s of 192.168.x.x. 172.x.x.x or 10.x.x.x there are a total of about 20 client machines. If absolutely necessary I can change the UNIX IP's but I'd rather not.

Thanks for your time.

SBS must be installed using one of the RFC-standard private ranges. You will not get it to work properly using your current local address space.
