After I wrote that I realized *what else* it might seem like...\n\nYet I'm hoping to get a serious answer...\n\nI am simplifying our network, but I have an ongoing argument with the \nowner of the company (who admits to knowing nothing about networking) \nthat our production domain and test domain should be on separate subnets \n(ie. 10.1.1.x and and 10.1.2.x). He says that he wants the management of \nthe network to be simplified and therefore we should run both domains in \nthe same subnet. We have about 100 workstations and 10 servers, so this \nis not a big network by any means.\n\nI know it can be done either way. The reason I'm posting is to hopefully \ncall on the collective experience of the froup about the advantages of \ndoing this one way or the other.\n\nOnly caveat is users in the production domain will need to be able to \nconnect and work with servers in the test domain.
