Seperating a Domain from a Forest

Posted on 2008-11-13

Here is my current setup

Here goes:
Production Domain

Schema Owner:
Domain Role Owner:
PDC Role:
RID Pool manager:
Infrastructure Ower:

Corporate Domain

Schema Owner:
Domain Role Owner:
PDC Role:
RID Pool manager:
Infrastructure Ower: is the root domain of the forest, as a result the production01 domain controller is the "Chief" of the forest.

What I need to know is if there's a way to break the corporatedomain from the productiondomain's forest, and have it in it's own forest.

So basically Corporate01 needs the schema owner, and the domain naming master role, and productiondomain needs to stay exactly as is.

    No you cannot prune bits off a domain - all you can do is create a new seperate domain (and forest)
