We have two physically separate static networks with the same subnet, containing a total of some ~100 windows computers (servers and workstations) that we want to merge. If configuration is done correctly, there should be no ip conflicts, but we experience some weird behavior in the network when simply connecting them (some servers seem to be dropping in and out). We want to check if there is an IP conflict. What is the best way to forge ahead?
Your situation tells that you have no clue of IP addressing scheme in that particular setup. If so, I would simply check all servers and their IP, after do simple ip scan, you can google it or faster way is check arp tables on servers on both networks.
