Does anyone know of resources to reference as a guide to incorporating an existing domain tree into an existing forest?  There are two companies that will coexist as separate entities yet want to share one mamagement scope.

Thanks Paul

You'll probably want to use ADMT or ClonePrincipal to do this.

The Windows 2000 Domain Migration Cookbook should give you all the answers you need on the available tools and how to use them.

Domain in a forest, share a common schema. This is the reason why you cannot icorporate an existing domain or tree in your forest.
In this case, you have to use AD domain and trust and enstablish a trust relationship.
