Hello everyone,

I just started working for a company and I need some help.  Right now we have two domain's in one forest.  Domain A I think has control of everything.  (trusts and stuff).  However, I'm working at Domain B.  Domain B will be leaving the forest, because that location will be starting thier own company.  I went and looked at the trusts and domains on Domain B, but I didn't see any trusts, or other domains besides mine.  Does this mean all of that was set up on Domain A side?  Will there need to be anything done on my side to break off?  

Thanks

I suggest setting up a new domain for your location.  If you have more than 1 DC at your site I would demote one and promote it into a new Forest.  After that is done you can use ADMT to migrate all of your users/computer/groups to the new domain.

You will have to setup a new forest trust (which will have to be done as an enterprise admin) to use ADMT.  After you have migrated all users/computers you can break that trust.
