My company has two physical locations each with its own server running AD DS, DNS, DHCP and their own unique databases.   All workstations in both locations run identical applications.    Location A will be shutting down for a couple of months for renovations.   I would like to move server A  to location B so its database can be accessed.   I was planning on giving server A a DHCP scope of 10-130, while configuring server B a scope of 130-250 all under the same 192.168.1.xxx.    Server A (Windows Server 2008 R2) would have an address of 192.168.1.2 while server B (Windows Server 2016 Standard) would be 192.168.1.3.

Would the 20 workstations at location B be able to switch back and forth between Domain A and Domain B simple by logging out of A and into B?

If this theory is not correct, what is the proper way of setting this up?
