What are the consequences of having a subnet within a subnet? Eg. First network is 10.0.0.0/8 and the second is 10.0.1.0/24.
Thanks for everyone's replies. The original design, which is not my own, was to simply have two separate networks that have no need to communicate with each other. For some reason the tech that set it up did it this way. I realize that they are separate subnets and therefor unable to fully talk without routing. Just a little confusing that they were setup within each other.
My main concern though is if this would degrade performance within the 10.0.0.0/8 network because of unreturned responses from the 10.0.1.0/24 network's devices. Any ideas or am I crazy?
