asked on

Domain on HOST different from multiple GUEST domains (for mgmt purposes of host and VMM access to guests)

Scenario:  

- Domain1 is an existing domain with managed computers - physical and virtual - using SCE2010 etc.
- Domain2 is a new "company" to be completely isolated, separate, etc. - with its own Exchange server (and AD of course) .. and so on - 100% on multiple guest vm's running on a single host -- call it NEWHOST

Question is - for management purposes only .. does it make sense (and IS IT the best way) to have NEWHOST as a member of Domain1 -- even though the GUESTS on NEWHOST will create a new distinct domain (Domain2) and will host new Exchange server and so on.

Any issues .. ??

i would add NEWHOST to domain1

i have a similar set up for a subdivision we run,

the first host i did not add to our domain1 - when we needed to expand with a second host i added that to the company domain1 and it worked so much better I added the original host to the company domain1.

everybodies happy!

Greg -- sounds good .. but it's important to realize (for OUR scenario anyhow) .. that there can be no chance or issues with cross-polination etc. - right ?  The two domains have to be distinct, separate, isolated - etc. - right ?  For business AND compliance purposes -- but this would still be the case - you think .. ?
Greg - and DO you have a completely new and separate DOMAIN running within the guest vm's on your new hosts .. like I want to do?
