EXAM 70-294

OBJECTIVE

Creating a New Child Domain in an Existing Domain

This will often be the third domain that you install, as shown in Figure 4.22. This type of arrangement accommodates a tree comprised of two different company groups, sometimes in physically separate locations. Since domains are used as boundaries for security and administration, there are many reasons for segregating a subgroup. If a group requires higher or lower levels of security, or if a different group of administrators requires complete control, then a child domain is a good idea.With the procedure in Exercise 4.07, you will create your first child domain within any existing tree of your forest. Note that a new bidirectional, transitive trust is automatically created with the parent domain, simultaneously creating an implicit trust between the child domain and the forest-root. See the section Establishing Trust Relationships later in this chapter for more information on the transitivity and direction of trusts.
