Dual SBS Servers on a Network?

By webmaster ·
We currently have one SBS server running on our network in the local IP range of 192.168.30.x with the sub. I would like to configure a second SBS server, although Microsoft does not allow the operation of two SBS servers on the same network. If I use a different Local address set with the same subnet am I considered to be using a different network?

All help is Appreciated.

A SBS server is a PDC. If you add a second SBS server and give it the same domain name as your existing one, you'll enjoy a world of problems that will leave you wondering "just how high is our roof here anyway?" Do yourself a favor and get rid of SBS altogether!

What if I were to use a different domain

by webmaster In reply to You'll have issues

Would the Network Segment still be considered separate from the currently functioning network.

Yes can put up a SBS on a different Subnet and call it the same or a different name. What you'll end up with is to pdc's with different sids, two domains (labelled the same name?) and depending on what you do with the client ip stacks...some sets connecting to the first unable to see the second and vice-versa. All this is a perfectly legit approach...if thats the desired effect.
Answer? take the previous advice...don't go that route.
