Greetings Experts -
We're looking to build a 2008R2 lab domain geolocation.company.com and later join it to the main company.com domain as a child domain. The catch is the new company.com domain doesn't exist yet so we'd be creating the child domain first as a standalone domain and then "converting" it to a child domain a few months down the road.
Is this possible with 2008R2? We have the option to set up a domain trust between them but our understanding is that the parent-child domain setup would be more seamless.
Any advice/info you can offer is much appreciated. Thank you! :)
