Domain Forest

I have two  windows 2000 domains with different dns name space

one is www.xxx.com  and another is www.yyyyy.net     both the domain controllers are on the same ip range.


my question is does both the domain belong to same forest or different forest.


regards
venkat

i think that your domains are probably not named www.* (it just sounds strange to have a domain named www.*)
run active directory sites and services and active directory domains and trusts to find out if you are in the same forest

yes you are right, it is named as www.* .

to put in simpler way, how to find whether two domains with two different dns namespace but on same ip range
are in same forest or not

i am able to ping from the domain controller   das.xxx.com  with ipaddress xxx.xxx.xxx.1   to the domaincontroller
exch.xxxx.net with ipaddress xxx.xxx.xxx.52  both by name and ipaddress.

But when i open either activedirectory sites and services or domain trusts console from das.xxx.com only das.xxx.com
is visible. does it mean both are in different forests?
