  • Question Re: DNS and subnetting in 2k3 env.

    If I create two forests with one domain in each forest, can both domains share the same subnet with different DNS suffixes?

    Thanks!

    yes
    There is no relationship between subnet and DNS

    DHCP, of course, could be interesting....

        Why do you need two forests (or even two domains)?

          I work for a company that has no test envrionment and can have zero down-time. The guy before me implemented roaming profiles on Domain A at the domain-level default GPO. If I were to remove it, all of the system accounts (business critical ones that run necessary services, etc.) would need to be logged off, and it could cause significant data loss and disruption of business as usual to edit the default GPO at the domain-level.

          So I decided in an effort to mitigate risk and reduce points of failure we should create a new forest and a new domain (or Domain B) for "users" and apply the old "if it's not broke don't fix it" addage with regard to Domain A.

            I would VLAN a switch and use that.

              just create a GPo that has the sole purpose of setting up roaming profiles and apply it to the appropriate OU or user group, then remove the setting from the default policy.
              shouldn't need to log the accounts off and on - just wait till they go through their normal maintenance reboot, and the new policy will be applied then
