VM Ware RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work in an organization which has 18 servers and around 170 PC's. During free hours i need to practice and create Active Directory  DNS etc. I have installed a VM Ware and installed server 2008 on it. i need to ask if i start i start creating AD and else in the network will it effect the network of my company....??? because my company has a Virtual Additional Domain Controller and a DC.

    If i want to Test or Practise will my company network gets disturb...?? if yes is there any alternate solution so that i can practice without affecting to network

  • As a best practice I would suggest you to configure dedicated vLan for your test lab environment. It will allow you to isolate your lab from production. Sure thing you can deploy new AD in production network (make sure that IP address and DNS name of new DC/DOMAIN is not used) but imho I see no reason to do that.
