  • Child domain question

    Hi all,

    Just installed a child domain in a lab enviroment, and i can see it under "Domains and Trust" and i can change domain in "Users and Computers" but i wondered, should i not on the parent domain (Root Domain) be able to see child domains in users and computers or in the Server Manager?

    Windows Server 2008 (not r2) 32bit

    Maybe i should not be able to see it, but would like it confirmed.

    No, ADUC connects to one domain at a time

        Why not run MMC and add the snap in twice, once for each domain? Then once that's done, right click on each in the navigation pane and select "Connect to Domain".

        That seems to work on 2003, I imagine it would also work on 2008.
