I'm trying (with great difficulty) to learn Windows Server 2003. I read some book that said "you can construct three types of relationships, or models between sites and domains." What is the difference between a site and a domain? I thought they were one and the same.

Hi,

A site is generally considered a group of computers that are well connected with a reliable and high bandwidth using IP to communicate and is deinfed more at a physical level.

A  domain is a logical grouping of resources based on function and role and it more of a logical grouping i.e. computers, users, shared resources ,etc

domain: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Server_Domain

Example of site:
-Head Office (10.1.1.0)
-Branch A (10.1.2.0)
-Branch B (10.1.3.0)
-Branch C (10.1.4.0)

All above sites below to one single domain (e.g domain.com) or Branch A, Branch B, Branch C are subdomain (e.g branch.domain.com) of parent domain (eg. domain.com)
