  • Dns namespace and Active directory

    Hopefully someone can help
    Scenario: Company A ( buys out Company B (
    Acme and Widget are connected by a reliable high speed private line.
    Acme wants to migrate into the domain. Domain
    controllers, DNS, and Exchange servers will be located in both locations

    1. The Networking admin group insist that they want a dns sub-domain of The AD group wanted to have a flat
    domain structure (no ad subdomain just add additional domain controllers at's location). Is this possible? If so How?
    Doesn't the dns name space have to match the AD namespace?

    create cross forrest trust,

    On acme's forrest root domain set a delegation to widget dns servers and do the same at the widget end

    use FQDN's to resolve DNS across the 2 forrests
