This may not fall strictly within this newsgroup, but I bet some of you know the answer. We are a small company, 1200 users, Win 2000 Domain, 1PDC 3BDC's 1 Exchange Server (2K sp3), 35 servers total.2 administrators (me & another guy do all head cook and bottle washer administration for the domain) Scenario: We may have to spin off a part of the company, yet they would still fall under us. Is it possible to create a sub domain, with its own PDC. This Domain would have would have its own PDC, but not BDC's (I have no servers to spare). I would need to have the child domain utilize WINS & DNS from the parent domain (they would stay within the IP network), also Exchange would have to be able to service this child domain. (I have licenses to Install another Exchange 2003, but it would have to reside on the PDC). I'm probably forgeting something here, but I think you get the picture. Is it possible? I don't have any SBS' Licenses... -Doug Confidentiality Notice: The information contained in this message may be legally privileged and confidential information intended only for the use of the individual or entity named above.
