do you want new child domains or new domain controllers?

eg. sub.domain.com

I guess I want new child domains.  Do I need to set up a new domain controller for each new child domain?  Thanks.

yes, you need a DC per domain. When you promote the new DC, you promote as a new domain in an existing forest and then specify the domain details to make it a child domain......

remember, a child domain has a completely separate active directory database - new users, groups, policies
