Q

Can I use two different IP blocks in my AD infrastructure?

In my Active Directory infrastructure, is it possible to use two different IP blocks?

I'm currently planning on configuring Active Directory in my network, which already contains two different IP blocks. (I have the 64.110.xx.xx and the 66.133.xx.xx network numbers.) Can you please give me some tips on implementing AD and DNS in this environment?
It is OK that there are two different IP blocks in the AD infrastructure. However, you will want to make sure that both blocks are represented in the Active Directory Sites and Services Console. By default only the local IP address range will appear here assigned to the machine.
