Hi all experts,

I have a domain called "maindomain.com" and a child domain called "child.maindomain.com".

The question is --
1. Can I have a primary site server in "maindomain.com" and another primary site server in "child.maindomain.com"?

2. Can I set the primary site server (from now I call it A) in "maindomain.com" the parent site of the primary site server (from now on I will call it B)  in "child.domain.com"?

3. If question #2 is yes, is A the central site of my forest?

4. If question #3 is yes, can I have a report of all the information of all sites?

Thanks.. if there is any doubt .. let me know.
