I'm a developer evaluating the BI capabilities of SharePoint. We've already got a SharePoint server running in our domain, but enabling the needed functionality would require a lot of work from our SharePoint administrators, so I thought I'd run it in a virtual machine on my local computer.
During the SharePoint installation, I realized that the server running SharePoint needs to be connected to an AD domain. My question is: would this be okay or would it in any way disrupt the existing SharePoint instance? They would share no common data, be on different servers, only thing shared would be the domain they're connected to.
On my VM I'm running Windows Server 2012 R2 and SharePoint 2013.
