Currenly we have windows 2003 domain, Exchange 2003 and windows 2003 file servers. We have taken over by another company and they already have a domain. We now need to join thier domain as a child domain. As we have the domain controller and the exchange server we would like to keep these and have it joined to the new child domain. Would this be a complex project and if anyone has gone through this process please advice me. also if there is a project plan on this can anyone please forward it to me.

Thanks

You can't add an existing domain as a child domain - you have two options:
1. create a new child domain on the existing domain and migrate users with the ADMT tool

2. Create a trust between the two domains

There is an aricle here on using ADMT - its 2000->2003 but 2003->2003 is the same
