We have 2 separate domains connected to the same network (different subnets)
(windows 2003 environment in domain A and windows 2008 in domain B).
question:
can Domain A become a sub domain of domain b?  if so, please elaborate with instructions or article that talks about it.

You can use Microsoft's ADMT or a third party migration tool (Quest or NetIQ for example)

You can't just move the domain (i.e. forklift a domain) so that is why you have to use a migration tool to migrate the objects to a new domain


Thanks

Just a thought but you could create a trust relationship between the 2 instead of forklifting it. That way you can leave it how it is setup and just create a 2 way trust so that you can see both objects.
