I have win2k3 ad in private net. It is for abc.com domain and it is running fine. I need to implement adc for gef.com and hij.com domain. I have only win2k server license. The question here is when I install win2k ad, should I choose existing forest or new forest with the first ad server? It is going to install in the same network. Can give trouble to the existing win2k3 ad (abc.com) domain?

What forest functional level is the Win2k3 AD running in? You may not install Win2k AD servers in a 2003 native or 2003 interim forest functional level forest. Your forest functional level for the 2k3 forest would need to be running in Windows 2000 mixed mode.
