Hi Experts,

I have 2 SQL servers at 2 separate locations, both have been installed and configured stand alone servers. What would happen if i had them on the same network?

There is no need for them to communicate at an SQL level they both run separate applications and there is no DC onsite as there is no requirement for one.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Nothing would happen.  They would continue on functioning as stand-alone servers.  However, you would need to change the IP on the one being moved to the other site to ensure users can communicate to it.  If there are DNS entries then you would need to ensure that it is updated with the correct IP address, else inform the users of the new IP address.  Also, if you have applications connecting via IP address then you would need to change them too.
