Windows 2008 R2 forest

Posted on 2014-08-14
Last Modified: 2014-09-16
I currently have a Dell server running as a domain controller for Company A.  I have a second Dell server running Windows 2008 R2 that I bought from another place.  Company A also runs Company B.

I'd like to have each server run a separate company, yet have both networks connected.  I know that this gets me into creating a forest, but do not know how to do that.

Any Help would be appreciated.
