    Map Curriculum drive onto Admin machine

    Hi all,

    I have a school that has 2 seperate machines for admin and curriculum domains. Curric is server 2003 r2 and admin is server 2008.
    I am trying to map the curriculum drives onto an admin machines but the admin machines won't talk to the curriculum server...
    Both admin and curriculum networks connect into the main cisco switch so I was wondering if there is any way of getting it to map?
    I am hoping to merge the admin and curric domains onto 1 machine so I can set trusts up for this in future as the 2003 server is antique!!!

    Thanks in advance.

    Can you ping the curriculum server?

    They are most likely on separate VLAN's. Is this an LEA setup?

    Yes LEA set up.
    Might give them a call tomorrow as we have support on the admin. Usually take a week to get back to me though

    Are you accessing the server using the FQDN?

    You'll need to connect the Admin server to both networks, and setup a trust between the two... Not sure on the specifics, not done it for a while...

    When we had the same setup (which I promptly ripped out) they were on different IP ranges on different VLAN's.

    Just been on the bursar's machine which is Win 7 and set up as peer to peer.
    Hoping I can allow the admin to connect to the curric through the curric trust.
    If not I'm thinking of adding a wireless network card into the admin machine and connecting to the curric through that. They will rarely use it anyway.
    Cheers for all the advice

    I added a wireless card to our admin Pc's when we were having a classroom built .The builders (nice chaps) took a circular saw to the ceiling and promptly wiped out the entire cabling in school . On the plus side we now have new shiny data cabs and fibre between floor levels .

    IDEA's come to mind:

    1) VPN?
    2) VLAN HOPPING?
    3) modify ACL?

    might be quicker and easier to just shove a 2nd nic in the admin server and give it a curriculum ip address (and obviously plug it into a curriculum switch) than ask lea or i found they would only allow the top 32 ips (which if all pcs were wired only might work) but as my printers/servers etc are already there and if i need to add say 12 laptops with 2 nics each thats most of that chunk already used
