    We currently have sites with 10.x.x.x subnets in 1 AD domain. Is it possible
    to create a new site using a 192.168.x.x subnet or is it best practice to
    change the range to a 10.x.x.x ?

    TIA

    Chris

    You've lost me.
    What is your question?
    Can I renumber my subnets from the 10.x.x.x range to the 192.168.x.x range?

    Yes you can, but why would you??
    There's nothing to gain from ip renumbering besides trouble.
    Only renumber when you have to!

    You can have any subnet you like, but make sure you stay in the private zone
    ranges.
    AD does not care about subnets, as long as the actual subnets in use
    correspond with the subnets defined in AD.

    No, the numbers are irrelevant to AD Sites and Services (as long as they
    reflect your REAL, ROUTABLE network.)

    You create sites because you have those (remote) locations with those
    particular subnet ranges.

  6. There's no problem with using addresses which aren't private ... I've worked
    on many a network that is that way.

    Try connecting to an Internet site on an address space equal to yours...

    He didn't say SOMEONE ELSE's address. He merely says public addresses.

    Many organizations have public addresses, especially larger companies and
    universities. Those can be used without problem.

    AD has no aversion to public addresses. You must however use addresses
    that will be fully routable for your AD DCs and clients.
