Hi Doug

SBS will only allow to you to create a new Forest with the server being the 
root of it. Thus I am farid what you are propsoing isn't possible with SBS.

However, you could install a Windows 2003 server in to a workgroup and then 
install AD and create a child Domain within the smae Forest. Do remember that 
if they subsequently wish to install E2K or E2K3 on the server or another 
server in their child Domain they will be using your Global Address List as 
they will still be in your Domain forest. would that be a problem? If it is the 
best long term solution, although rather laborious to say the least, may be to 
create them their own independent AD strcuture.

Hope that helps.

  Subject: [exchangelist] Child domain?

  My organization has to spin off some of our clinics in a few months; I'd like 
to run this by you all.

  Currently the users there are in our domain, and use our exchange for mail 

  Can I buy them a new server with SBS(Small Business Server), create a new 
child domain in our existing forest using SBS?

  Or maybe a server with Windows Server 2003, promote to a domain controller in 
its own child domain, with exchange 2000 standard (I have an unused license). 
There are only about 50 users there. I'm looking for the best solution, and 
need to plan for it now.
