Subdomains on a Windows 2003 SBS Network
Posted on 2009-05-22
I have a network with a Windows 2003 SBS server at our head office, we are adding a Windows 2008 Standard Server at a branch office.
Currently all the computers at the head office are membes of the "company.local" domain (e.g. computer.company.local) , what I would like to do is have all the head office computers in a sub-domain, (e.g. computer.headoffice.company.local) and all the branch office computers in another sub-domain (e.g. computer.branchoffice.company.local).
Is this possible? If so how?
Microsoft have told me that because I already have enough SBS CALs for both offices, as long as the second Windows 2008 Standard Server is in the same domain, I wont have to purchase speperate CALs for the 2008 server, so I want to keep both the servers in the same main domain, but segregated into subdomains as well.
Any help would be appreciated.
