Setting up new domain tree in active directory- should tree show up in users and computers mmc?

I have set up a new tree in our domain for testing and things don't look like I expected
them to, I hope you can help..

In the AD users and computers I have my domain listed followed by the OU's
+mydomain.com
   computers
   users
   dc's
   etc..

What I was expecting to see was something like:
+mydomain.com
   computers
   users
   dc's
   etc..
   +tree1.mydomain.com
      computers
       users
       etc

I see no reference to the new tree, However if I run the domains and trusts
mmc I do see the master domain and the tree like the 2nd example. If I then select
the tree and run  manage then this takes me to the users and computers snap in
 on the sub-tree.

If managing multiple trees in a forrest is it normal to create seperate OU's at the top level
for the tree domains ( names can't match becuse objects would then be duplicated) or should the
tree show up in the root users and computers mmc.


Thanks for any help on this!

As far as I am aware you can only view one domain at a time in Users and Computers, you have proven this point by choosing the manage this domain option in Domains and Trusts.  You can choose the connect to domain by right clicking on Active Directory Users and Computers, if you choose your other domain, you should then be able to see it OK.

Hope this helps
