Two forests on different subnets

Have a lab project using a Watchguard firebox splitting two interfaces internally trusted/trusted. One interface is the other is An existing 2008 R2 forest/domain is parked on the 1.x subnet. I want to create a 2012 forest/domain on the 7.x side. Any problems with these co-existing? Not planning to establish trusts, everything is static, no DHCP.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The only time this would even to be considered an issue is if you had 2 forests on the SAME subnet. As you have stated this these forests are on different subnets makes this setup completely acceptable.
