I am looking for best practice setup of our environment.
This is what we presently have now, and it is very confusing:
I am just helping someone who has this situation. three data centers, each data center has four forest with single domain, one for public, one for data, one for emails, and one for something else. Some of them have trust relationships.
As you can see there are 12 domains.
We want to redesign this, and what would be best practice, create one forest say:
root domain: xyz.com then create child domains
public.xyz.com, email.xyz.com data.xyz.com
My concern here is the FSMO's. Since Schema & Domain naming is per forest, what happens if I loose the DC.
WHat is the best practice for redesigning.
