AD Sites and Services

We have recently moved a subdomain to be on the same network as our main site (same vlans and IP address.

In sites and services we need to add the relevant subnets to that site, but we cannot find anywere were we can add the subnets to the sites.
We have even tried creating a new site and moving the server

All subnets should be in the "Subnets" folder under "Sites of the Active Directory Sites and Services console. Do you at least see this? If so, what happen when you create subnet? What error message are you getting?
Once you've added the subnets to the subnet folder (as directed above), then you can add the subnets to the sites via the subnet properties (right-click on the subnet, and select the site from the drop down).
To add the subnet, you right click the 'Subnets' container and select 'New Subnet'. You associate the subnet with a site when you create it. Even when it associated with a site, it doesn't actually sit under this site, just in the Subnets container. You have to view the properties of the subnet to see it's association.
Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

hmmm its not done like that example:

Main Site has 8 subnets
New Site uses same subnets as main site but is a subdomain

how do i add the to the new site without removing from the main site
Mike KlineCommented:
A subnet can't span multiple sites, you can have domain controllers from different domains in the same site.
thought you were trying to create the relevant "subnets" for the main site and even tried to create new site...guess you already did all of that except moving the Child DC to the existing main site.
