We have 25 users and PCs on a Network they all below to a workgroup and we use a SonicWall firewall (192.168.254.1)
SonicWall firewall is doing DHCP DNS for us.
The LAN range is 192.168.25.4.100 - 192.168.254.190
I want to install a Small Business Server 2011 and have the server do DHCP and DNS
PCs are Windows 7 Prof. and will join the domain using 20 new A.D. accounts
We also have 5 network printers that will be managed by the new SBS
We are not going to use Exchange so I am not going to install it
I'd like to set up this SBS now as much as I can and then over the weekend join all the PCs to this new domain.
I know I cannot have two DHCP and DNS servers on the LAN
I'm trying to get as much as I can done now and then finish up on the weekend
Can I install the SBS DHCP and DNS using the same LAN 192.168.254.XXX and simply turn these services off on the SBS for now
then when ready turn off DHCP and DNS on the firewall and turn SBS DHCP and DNS on when ready?
or should I leave DHCP and DNS off the SBS then later install these services?
Any suggestions are appreciated
