Active Directory design

Hi,

We have multiple separate domains throughout the company in different countries and is considering the various possibilities to group them into a single forest.

What is the best way to group all the domains into a single forest?

Thank you.

The best strategy is create
a root domain (which will consist of schema master & domain naming master)
& a child domain(which will consists all other objects)

Now create a trust between the new child domain & other domains
Use admt like tools to migrate all seprate domains to this single domain.

All domains within a single Active Directory forest are connected by two-way transitive trusts.

I would create a domain for the IT groups, and another separate domain for the user objects.  Use a non-Internet resolvable domain name for the internal domain.
