Hello,

We have a configuration where the parent domain is called domain.com and the child domain called sysdev.domain.com. Our structure is using Windows 2003 active directory.

I would like to be able to log on to the child domain with parent domain credentials.

However, I would like to make a an account who is a part of the domain user accounts in the parent domain a domain admin account in the child domain.

Is this possible? If so, how is this accomplished?

The goal is ot have the child domain managed by developpers within our company (the child domain is designed ot be a test lab) whereby the developpers have complete control over the child domain but not the parent domain..

Can I accomplish this?

Thanks,

Mark

Unfortunately no, the domain admin group is a global group and can only have accounts from its own domain

You can create them a second account, enterprise admins have rights but limit membership in that group.

Thanks
