I am planning on setting up a new SBS2011 server to replace my current server which is running SBS2003 but still need to access the application on the old server whilst being logged into the SBS2011 domain.
I know I can’t run two SBS servers on the same domain, but can I setup them up on separate domains but on the same subnet and physical network or different subnets but again on the same physical network.
Is it possible to setup a one way trust so that the SBS2003 domain trusts the SBS2011 domain or will that cause conflicts? If not is there alternative solution that will achieve the same result.
Windows AD domains aren’t related to your physical network structure. You certainly could run both SBS servers on the same subnet. Just make sure that only the new SBS server is acting as the DHCP server for your clients.
