  • How to setup a subdomain in Windows Server 2003

    Even after searching the forum I couldn't get and answer to my question.
    My question is How to create / setup a subdomain in an existing Windows Server 2003 Domain Controller.

    Should the new subdomain be in the same network?

    Please Help!!

    When you run DCPROMO there should be an option to add a subdomain into an additional domain (Sorry - I'm no where near my VM's so can't provide a screenshot)

    You should be able to configure the new sub domain to run on servers on the same network IP addressing as your existing domain. It might start getting complex if you have multiple sites with different subnets but if you provide more info we should be able to help

        As long as the domain and subdomain are on a networks (same or different) that can talk to each other you'll be OK.

          when you mean subdomain it means additional dc in an existing dc right? but how to make the domain talk to each other in different network?

          i m confused once again.

          thanks for the reply...

            No.

            If you have a domain called domain.local but you need to apply different domain security policies you need to create a new domain so I would create sub.domain.local which has a transitive trust relationship between domain.local and sub.domain.local. Authentication can occur between domains and users can access resources in other domains (If allowed)

            Why exactly do you think you require another domain or do you mean you just want another DC for your exsiting domain?

              Re: How to setup a subdomain in Windows Server 2003

              the new domain that will be created is the additional dc in an existing domain but i want to give a different network to it. my domain name is national.com and i want to create an additional sub-dc called sunday.national.com in a different network. is it possible? since i know that for creating an additional sub-dc we need to keep it in the same network as the existing domain. if it is possible can you please tell me how?

              please help!!!
