I have been studying these two domain for a couple of weeks. I am working as a contractor for this company.
They have let's call them ABC, original, and Domain DEF, Newly created, Domains. There is NO, or very little documentation for this corporate network much of what I know is just from looking at settings. The two Domain have a transitive trust between going both ways.
My question how do I know if I am looking at two Domains or a Domain and a Child domain
I think they are setup as separate top level Domains. Because my computer name is DEF.com. I think, if I were in a child domain, my computer name would be ABC.DEF.com. It would make sense the Domain admin put up the DEF Domain as a top level with the idea of taking down ABC.
ABC Domain is on 192.168.1.x
DEF Domain is on 10.1.1.x
I appreciate the help,
