Hello

I have the following scenario:

Two PDC named - company1 and company2 in two not-connected networks. Now I
have to connect two networks together.
The question is: Is it possible to have 2 PDCs in one network - if not what
is the best solution in my case (there are several third party application
installed on each server - each PDC)

Best Regards

Dariusz Tomon

Yes, you can in this situation. However you cannot have two PDCs in the same
NT domain. These sound like separate domains, so you're OK.

Not sure exactly what your concern is here but there is nothing
wrong with having two or more domains on the same tcp/ip subnet
as long as the domain names are not identical.

Be carefull when you connect the networks together.
When another company in our building had to run over our network i did get
problems with the DHCP servers. On both domains the servers acted as DHCP
server and the result was that PC's on network1 suddenly did get their ip
adresses from the server on network2 wich resulted in computers not able to
reach their own domain.
I physically disconnected both networks.
It still might work if you give out ip adresses by hand.
Greetings.

Of course you'll need to down DHCP on one
of the servers but if you want them to communicate
from different subnets you would need a router which
is why it's easier to put them on the same subnet if they
are on the same segment..
