Hello all,

This is my first question but this site has helped with a few issues in the past.

I need help getting a second domain on our existing AD network.  We recentlly aquired a smaller orginization and want to keep their existing domain name.

Our primary DC is a server 2003 SP2 box we also have 1 2000 server SP4 box and a few other 2003 DCs through out our 5 sites

I have not seen the new site yet and i'm not too sure what they are running...I guess it doesn't matter since we are planning to buy and set up new equipment anyway.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  If you need additional info let me know.

KCTS, If you don't mind, can you elaborate a little on the plus and minuses of each?  

Also I should mention that what my supervisor is looking for is to have that new domain intergrated into our system.  meaning that they would keep there domain name but intergrated into our AD and global address list.  He wants to be able to browse there network from ours....I hope any of tis makes sense.
